I thought it was funny I followed him for a good 3 miles and he was going crazy fast weaving and getting stuck in traffic. I split lanes in front of him although a lot of other cars were going way faster then me he just charged right by when once traffic cleated

The best "where are they when you need one" story I have is about year or so ago, I was doing a steady 70 mph in lane 3 or 4 on the 405 north where the 22 merges at about 9:30 at night so it's dark. I didn't know it but a CHP cruiser was shadowing me. A few miles before the 605, a fellah on a wide open freeway zooms right past me, cuts in front of me fairly close and then jams his brakes. Well, that dipsh1t got a nice surprise because the CHP cruiser shadowing me, flicked on the pursuit lights immediately and pulled that dumba55 over. I have never felt so redeemed! Hah! I hope the officers dragged him out of the window by his ears and nose and gave that jerk a Rodney King style beat down - that's a joke BTW for those who lack the mental aptitude to detect humor.

Input? I'm on the cop side, he shouldn't have moved if the cop said not too. I mean he obviously must have been guilty of something since he wants to run, people are overlooking that this guy is a criminal lol.

22 inches is the minimum. See 24400(a) of the Vehicle Code.

I know you guys dont make the rules but some of the rules are pretty damn stupid. If i were a LE i wouldnt not enforce this law.
It is dangerous. The majority of people cannot manage to do two things at the same time. Look up the SWITRS report before and after the law went into effect and you might be surprised.
