The cops have a lot of regulations that they have to remember. It is not their fault if they do not have a background in why the laws are what they are. That is what the courts are for. If there is a reasonable explanation that excuses a violation, it will be heard and adjudicated. The problem with modding is that those who know, are made to suffer for the idiots who do some cheap mod, and create traffic issues that can lead to an accident. And you have law makers who do not understand the issues.
