MountainBiker ,
I have noticed that in a general sense , Sherrif departments are more realistic and have more peace officers in them than city cops . Was with a friend passing through Texas , and was pulled over by a rural deputy , he had some fishy things going on ( not his fault , somebody in his company dropped the ball ) . The guy was very cool , but made sure we stopped traveling for the night because of the non functional rear tail lights . Sort of like an Andy Griffith show .
