This has happened to me now several times, and it is getting to me psychologically. Around 3 am, state police and some local police on Cape Cod start driving behind me at a distance, then come up tail gating at an unsafe distance behind me to intimidate, or drive around me on the left side and pull me over. It seems, they are being ordered to do this by their supervisors and are out to meet an unofficial ticket quota. Each time this happens, it distracts me from driving, and being questioned each time by a tense policeman is unpleasant. More than half of the time, the police look for defect of some sort to justify why they pulled me over - driving too slow on Mass Pike, having license plate light bulbs out, not staying in lane, etc. Last time, it was raining after midnight, with no cars on the high way, as I was merging onto the highway, I see a state police cruiser with his front head light completely out shadowing me, pulling me over, saying, "You are driving like 45" and issuing yet another warning. I Googled it, and it is recommended that you reduce speed on wet road (it was also gusty and my car would shake periodically). It seems to me, the police are stopping me hoping to find drugs or some real violations, and then either justifying the stops with after-fact warnings or getting whatever they can get for their work performance statistics. All the time, I see state police cruising at more than 5 mph above the speed limit and more for a pleasure ride during their job, not showing a positive example. This style of work on behalf of the state and Cape Cod police interferes with my constitutional right to drive legally wherever I want within reason, of course, and works against me being a safe driver, distracts and creates stress on the road. The police also sometimes shadow me when I drive through rich towns like Newton/Natick/etc., and it again distracts me from safe driving as I have to watch a near tail gater in my rear view window, and be stressed out about minimal reasons the police can again use as black mail to stop or after they stop me. I am a young white guy driving a small almost 20 year old family car, and I realize this fits the profile of a drug dealer or a low life and thus the police naturally want to stop me hoping to find drugs or prevent some crime. I have no problem being pulled over and questioned, however, once the police see there is no crime inside my car, they should politely end the stop, and should not be issuing a series of warnings and possibly tickets which make it harder for me to go about my daily life. Driving on the road is a partnership, and I slow down and switch lanes before driving past a police cruiser standing on the side of the road for example to reduce chance of collision and alert drivers behind me. Same with road crew workers. It's a shame that not only does one have to worry about being a victim of a regular crime, or avoiding a road accident, but also has to go about their life worrying about be a victim of the police ticket quota system or being talked to in an escalating and potentially dangerous way by whoever pulls you over. I am guessing the failure here is at the state leadership and the police leadership, failing to promote and maintain safe driving, hiring people and getting those people to not be acting in a way consistent with the mission of the organization. Stay safe on the road, and enjoy your drive..
