We’ve all done it from time to time. Nobody is a perfect driver, and sometimes we feel comfortable going over the speed limit, or talking on our cell phones, or driving some distance without a seat belt. And we’ve all experienced what it’s like to suddenly see a police officer sharing the same road with us. You and every other commuter on that road will instantly turn into a model driver at the sight of a cop, because you know that the slightest transgression will lead you down a bureaucratic hell of tickets, court dates, and traffic school.
The cops know this as well. They know you’re the perfect driver when you can see them. That’s why several police departments in Texas came together to create Operation Safe Driver. Despite the name, I suspect it has less to do with safety and more to do with revenue generation. Considering how successful this sneaky operation is, don’t be surprised if you see the cops using tactics like these where you live in the near future.
