Somehow, This DIY License Plate Failed to Fool the Cops

  Somehow, This DIY License Plate Failed to Fool the Cops Somehow, This DIY License Plate Failed to Fool the Cops In the olden days of motoring, automotive registration numbers were assigned by states, but owners were left to their own devices as to how to display them on vehicles, leading to a nonstandard hodgepodge of license plates. By the 1920s, the free-for-all had become homogenized with state-issued plates, forerunners of the six-by-12-inch units we affix to our cars today. But sometimes plates get stolen. Or lost in the mail. Or, perhaps, DMV-related PTSD just won’t let a driver step into the office to acquire a new set.

Walsh then briefly honked his horn as the car came “flying down” the street. It was an unmarked police car , occupied by Officer Stephen Salot. “And he said to me ‘Look, I’ve got paperwork to do and if you continue to waste my time I can find other things to give him a ticket for .'”

In what is literally a plot point from the latest season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Lynette Atuaia received a $72 ticket for the "unnecessary use of horn" after she says she briefly beeped once at a car that appeared out of nowhere and passed her on the right as she crossed the intersection on the island of O'ahu. Unfortunately, it happened to be a police cruiser.

"I was afraid. I thought I was going to hit him. My initial reaction was, ‘Hey, get out of my way. I’m going to hit you. You’re cutting me off!'" she told KHON. "Then when I pulled over into the parking lot, he just said, ‘License and registration, I’m giving you a ticket for honking your horn.’ He said I should have seen I was an emergency vehicle, but he didn’t have his lights and sirens on as he was trying to cut me off or pass me."

Drivers Claim That Waze GPS App Instructed Them To Drive Into A Lake

  Drivers Claim That Waze GPS App Instructed Them To Drive Into A Lake When a salvage team pulled a Jeep from the bottom of a lake Monday, it had been there for more than a week. All the owner did was lend it to friends for a sight-seeing trip in Vermont, who, according to USA Today, said Google’s Waze GPS app instructed them to drive of a boat launch and into Lake Champlain. USA Today reports that the driver and two passengers didn’t realize what was happening until they’d slid onto the frozen lake. All of the Jeep’s passengers got out safely.

Unhappy about the police officer allegedly speeding for no apparent reason, she decided to give chase and use her cellphone to Flashing her lights and honking her horn behind the police cruiser, Castillo eventually managed to get the cop’s attention and he pulled off the road to speak with her .

Police spokesman John Elder said the woman was southbound near Groveland Avenue at 5 p.m. when she was cut off by a beige four-door Jeep Cherokee with tinted windows. She honked at the car , which then slowed down next to her driver side

According to Hawaii state law, drivers are only supposed to use their horns "when reasonably necessary to ensure safe operation" in traffic—in other words, to warn others of the imminent risk of a collision.

Even though that's exactly what Atuaia claims she was doing, she still ended up with a citation. She told the station she plans on contesting it in court, which the Honolulu Police Department confirmed is her right "if [she] feels the ticket was issued in error."

It's not the first time we've seen a questionable ticket issued over a perceived slight—and until we get those promised autonomous police cars, it won't be the last.
