Got pulled over by the campus-cowboys (university police) last year for, and i quote, "driving excessively loud" after rolling a little coal on the last day of classes.
Guy wouldn't get out of his vehicle until two other squad cars pulled up and managed to completely block traffic on the main road in/out of the school. When he finally came up to the window, he said he could hear my truck accelerating from a quarter mile away. I asked if I had been speeding. Nope. Asked if my driving had been reckless. Nope. Asked if he had any compelling reason for pulling me over. No reply.
Instead he walked to the back of my truck, and announced that he could see the center-line of my axle below the bumper, and as such I was required to have mud-flaps. I replied that by the same standard, both of the Ford Expeditions that he called as "backup" were in violation of the same mud-flap law.
Long and the short of it, I ended up with an official warning for "driving excessively loud" that's hanging proudly on my fridge.
