In 2010 when the olympics were going on this place was a police state. I think we had 3x the usual LEO's and they seemed to be very bored.

I was on the highway heading out of town to the ferry dock and knowing how many cops were around was behaving in the slow lane doing the speed limit.
Lights flash and I get pulled over, no clue as to why. The RCMP officer (out of towner, we don't have RCMP in that area) writes me up a $118 ticket for my license plate being vertical... Then when checking over my papers asks me if the bike is stolen. Nope, I reply. He then asks why the tank is silver when the insurance papers state the bike is orange. Well I painted it a couple of months ago. Another $118 violation. What an asshole.

Tax collectors.
