Mrs. Kravitz

I’m no Mrs. Kravitz.*

Frankly I don’t know my neighbors well enough to tell you much about them. But I do try to pay attention to my surroundings and I couldn’t help but notice this car parked on the side of my house yesterday.

It just screams “look at me” with it’s cop side lights, overly tinted windows and black license plates. There didn’t seem to be anyone in it at one point, but I wasn’t paying that close of attention.

My mind goes to a million places with this, but I’m sure it’s probably nothing. The most curious thing to me is that if I was a government agent wanting to maintain a low profile this would not be the car to drive. Now would it? So is it used for intimidation? For show? Who has black license plates? Can’t say because I don’t know, but it was a curiosity none the less.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

  1. I have to laugh. In my family there is a running joke: it started with my grandma and continues down to this day. Although the younger generation of niece/nephews and son do not get it. Whenever something was happening on the street down the road etc everyone would be peering through the lace curtains to see what was going on. We were Mrs. Kravitzing. Your title made me start grinning as soon as I read it. 🙂

  2. Yeah, law enforcement ain’t fooling anyone; the mistake they make is buying fleets of cars that all look the same. Here in my home state, it took the cops a long time to figure out how everyone knew an unmarked car was in the area. Not only did they all look the same – Crown Vics – they had – get this – a block of license plate numbers that all started with “571” and an Exempt registration sticker, to boot; only city/county/state owned vehicles had that registration sticker – a dead giveaway.

    Even when they figured out their mistake and mixed up their fleets, had plates like everyone else and got rid of that Exempt sticker, one look screams “police” because they haven’t quite figured out how to hide all those extra lights, they have too many antennae, stuff like that… that and I don’t know if they fully understand that a car sitting somewhere it shouldn’t be tends to scream “police” as well and that a strange car in the area always attracts attention… when it’s not supposed to… or law enforcement thinks it won’t.

      1. Hmm, maybe you should stop speeding. I grew up in da hood and you learn how to spot cop cars even when you’re not doing anything wrong. Our state police have a few Charger R/Ts… and they’re all black, no wheel covers, one too many antennae, and lights where no normal, regular R/T should have lights.

        Just screams, “I’m an unmarked police car!” And you just kinda learn to look for these things. They also have some Dodge Durangos, Chevy Tahoe’s – real nice, normal-looking SUVs… but with the same identifiers. If you’re out driving, any car sitting on the side of the road is suspect and more so when you don’t normally see cars sitting on the side of the road – hi, officer!

        Ha, just because you’re not paranoid doesn’t mean they ain’t out to get ya!

      2. I agree. In CA they purposefully put fully marked cars in high speed areas with a dummy inside. They do it to slow traffic with no intention of giving tickets. The day will come when that’s all going to be automated anyway I’m sure. Which sucks worse I think.

      3. I recall a state using a fake utility truck to nail speeders; entrapment was claimed since the truck wasn’t a marked police vehicle and while unmarked car makes sense, an official police vehicle masquerading as a utility truck wasn’t gonna cut it.

        As I recall, that agency said that it wasn’t entrapment and their remit said they can use any vehicle they wanted to for law enforcement efforts – but a court said otherwise. Now, obviously, a dummy behind the wheel of a marked car can’t give a ticket… but officers watching the car could – and that might be considered entrapment… or maybe not?

        I have no idea… which is why I don’t speed or commit other infractions because you never know what’s really going on.

      4. That’s true. I don’t speed much. Maybe 5-10 miles over the limit sometimes more of the road is clear and traffic is running smooth on a major highway. But still. Even those 10 miles over is citable unfortunately.

      5. Update:

        So the cop car was back today. It says Police Interceptor on it. A metal emblem as if it was the model of the car. It’s a cool car. It has a camera on the license frame. All black interior. So I called the cops on the cops. If it had tags I wouldn’t have bothered, but it reminds me too much or Men in Black. Lol. I’m still sure it’s nothing but just in case.

      6. Got the call from the policeman on duty. It’s a civilian car, bought at auction. Too cool!! I want one. You should see the guards on the front of it. It’s a cool looking car.

      7. They have the side lights near the mirrors still. I’m guessing the system for that is disabled. The officer said Ford made these special modems for the force exclusively, which is why they are tagged police enforcer. Soo cool!!!
