Cop Magnet

Driving a vehicle that you like could be a magnet for the police who absolutely do target certain makes, models and colors.
This marks the second cross country trip since I bought my mustang in September. I've been stopped in Oklahoma, Arizona, and now Arkansas for doing absolutely nothing wrong except drive a red Mustang GT with California plates. The excuse in Oklahoma was that I changed lanes too quickly after using my turn signal, in Arizona he said that I weaved inside my own lane and tonight in Arkansas he just wanted to make sure I wasn't tired! Of course they were all compelled to interrogate me and attempt to search my vehicle. What kind of country have we allowed this to become when a man is suspicious simply because he drives a vehicle? For shame!
