I went to L.A. and on my way home this freakin' under cover cop pulls me over and I asked him what I did. He said that I don't have a front license plate and I have a protective covering on my rear plates. So, I acted dumb and here's what happened:

Officer: The reason I pulled you over is because you don't have a front license plate and you have a smoked cover on your rear plates.

Me: Well, I just got my car from the body shop today and they forgot to put the plates on. I have the plates in my trunk.

Officer: Can you put it on right now or do you want me to give you a fix it ticket?

Me: Hell no! I'll put it on right now.

Me: I got the cover from pepboys and they said it's legal.

Officer: Well, Pepboys will say anything to sell you the product.

So, I attached my front plates and the cop didn't give me a ticket
:thumbup:

The only thing that's scaring me is that the cop asked for my Social Security, Drivers License, and Home phone number.

I asked them why they need it and they said that it's just a record that they talked to me and it's a survey. My f*ckin' problem is that I gave them my S.S.#:banghead: :banghead: But I got their License plates. Did anybody experience the same questions?

You sure it was an undercover cop? Why would an undercover cop bother with some guy who doesn't have a front plate and smoked rear plate?

It happened in L.A. by Alvarado and Glendale blvd. BTW, the cop was making some stupid comments like, "we're making some numbers" and "hey, is that the new drivers license? did you get that from 8th St. and Alvarado?"(for those of you that don't know, that's the place to get fake I.D.'s)

One of the cop was telling me that he has an X5 and his wife has a Z3 and never put their front plates on cuz it looks better. He also told me to just take it off after (I don't know if he was serious or not but I just told him that I don't wanna get a ticket.

Eric, I'll call you tomorrow and let you know if i'm going or not.

They drive a Crown Victoria w/ Police Interceptor Badge and they also have that cop lights. They were also wearing uniforms, they have guns, and they have the radio. But they have normal license plates.

nah it seems normal, i got a ticket in ohio by a trooper and they took my ss#, the car is just probably an unmarked police car which use regular license plates....try coming to nyc where they use yellow taxi cabs as a cover now. i saw one last night which had pulled over a nice 03 sL5...U think your passing a a normal cab on the highway next thing u know ur getting pulled over by that cab....sucks

thing i noticed was the cab cop had tinted windows in the rear as to hide the lightbar, not many yellow cabs with tints in nyc...so drive careful

A real cop has access to all your info with just a driver's liscense.
They never ask for SS # and phone number.
Report this to your local law enforcement ASAP. Check wioth them if that was proper procedure for an undercover cop.
It is X'mas time and people do funny things to get access to personal financial info. Watch your credit card accts closely.

BTW, did the 'cop' ask for registration of your car and insurance paper. If not, that's absolutely wrong.
