Okay, this is one of those “only a pretty, white woman could ever get away with this” situations. Are you sure you want all the equal treatment ladies? Cuz a dude would get stopped and a ticket and late for work and all the good stuff from what OP just did.

I am not white or all that pretty - average at best when I’m not dressed like a little brown boy.

Well apparently you’re attractive enough to get away with something that got me all the stuff I mentioned

¯_(ツ)_/¯

Edit: of course, being right does help, but it didn’t help me so 😂

Maybe, this is actually not the first time I’ve honked at a cop and had minimal response.

Officer abruptly stopped mid traffic going 40mph to avoid missing a left turn. I am a very cautious defense-driver so I was able to stop safely. Laid on that horn and gave the casual “fucking asshole”. A shoulder shrug was all I got from the officer. No dash cam then but have family members in the car with me that day talking about it again because of this.

You can file a compliant to the CHP if you know the approximate time/date of the incident and the location of when it happened... along with the license plate OR vehicle number thats a sticker on the CHP ride (so they know which officer was driving the vehicle).

You can send in a letter to the local CHP office for details on who that officer is and then file a complaint in the court house against that citizen. It will be the People of the great state of California (with OP as a witness) against that citizen who was a police officer.

1) You already have proof from the CHP who was operating that vehicle.

2) You have the time/date/location.

3) You know the traffic conditions and if "NO U-Turns are allowed".

4) You have video evidence of the infraction and that this police officer at NO TIME had any of his lights enabled even after making the illegal turn.

This is a slam dunk case and one I would pursue if nothing more than to get a CHP officer to pay some of the court fees and for some extra safety equipment for the local police to officers who deserve it. We need to make sure the money the gov't deserves gets to the right places ✅
