I’m fairly certain I’ve discussed the stop requirements every state in the Union has on their books. Here’s my bitch today, though…why is it frequently referred to as a “California” stop? Why not an “Ohio” or even, dare I say it, a “South Dakota” stop?
What is it about the good people of the Golden State that makes them eligible for a nation-wide phenomenon? Does the rest of the country think that we thumb our collective noses at such a bourgeois concept as traffic laws? Are we more apt to violate this particular section of the vehicle code?
Following that logic, why isn’t there such a thing as “New York” jaywalkers? How about “Montana” speeders? Or those “Alabama” right-of-way bastards…don’t get me started on those fuckers.
Lord knows I love this state of my birth. Lord also knows I can’t wait to get the hell out of here as soon as possible; however, that isn’t based on our inability to come to a full and complete stop. Seems to me, the granola-crunching, left-coasters have gotten a bad rap on this particular score.
I’m just puttin it out there…
