DMV.us.org believes that traffic police officers perform a vital service for our country. Keeping our roads safe from dangerous drivers is a very important job that saves lives. But, DMV.us.org also believes that they need to do their job fairly. And recent reports demonstrate to DMV.us.org that they have been grossly unfair to Colorado drivers this year.
As many of you know, Colorado recently legalized the sale and use of marijuana. This has not only made sure that people who simply like to get high once in a while are not treated as criminals, but it has also created a huge amount of much-needed tax revenue for the state.
In response, police officers from neighboring Idaho have started a campaign to pull over any driver they see with a Colorado license plate. They are doing so in hopes of finding marijuana in the car so they can make an arrest, which will usually lead to a fine that helps their own state coffers.
This is clearly a violation. Millions of people live in Colorado who have no interest in pot. And even those that do, for the most part, understand that it’s not legal in the rest of America. The only effect this really has is to harass people who live in Colorado and happen to drive through Idaho. It is unfair, and DMV.us.org believes that the practice needs to stop as soon as possible.
What do you think? Are the Idaho traffic officers out of line? We’d love to hear from you!
