Do you just send your auto insurance company a blank check every month?
That's what I was getting at. How can he afford to be such a lousy driver?

No they haven't. No doubt cops lie, but no need to make stuff like this up.

I had a perfectly clean record until recently so a lot of getting pulled over was when I was younger. There was also the easter weekend that I got pulled over 3 times in the same weekend. I had a car with tinted windows and got pulled over on 96 by that cop that always sits near Portland. He pulled me over and gave me a ticket for the tint. I asked him if it was a "repair and report" or what the situation was. He said "You don't have to fix it. It is just a fine. But it will remain illegal and you can continue to get tickets for it."
I setup an appointment with the place that did it to get it fixed the next weekend (weekend after Easter). So I have my ticket and am on my way back home. The same exact cop pulled me over on my way back to campus and gave me another "fine". I told him I had an appointment the following weekend and he said that I had better hope he wasn't on patrol when I went back to GR the following weekend. So I pay the fines and later get a letter in the mail from the Secretary of State telling me that I recently had 8 points added to my license. Each ticket he wrote me was not for tint, but rather a 4 point ticket for "Obstructed View". I got pulled over on campus that same trip for tint and when I explained my situation to the officer and that I had already received two tickets that weekend for the tint and that I could bring the car by the following Monday to show it repaired to him, he let me go. Hindsight it was probably because he saw the two 4 point tickets and felt bad for me, but either way, he let me off.
All the other tickets were for 75 in a 70 when my cruise has been set at 79. So now, I set the cruise at 75 and don't get pulled over.
You should contact that pig-fucker PRob. He might be able to help.
Dash Camera. In Russia - the insurance is terrible and the cops so corrupt that many cars have dash cameras. The cities in the US are going bankrupt and writing tickets is a funding mechanism, so they write bad tickets. It isn't going to get better.
It's only a lot if you're a white person.

So basically you were pulled over and didn't have the correct insurance and you forgot to ask for you ID, and its somehow the officers fault?
From what I've heard from a friend, who is a new deputy, a lot of those court dates are pointless. Usually the officer will win just by showing up.

I wonder if he still wears Sparty's head while driving? That might 'splain a lot.
What percentage tint did you have on your car? I've had 35/15 on two cars over the past 9 years and have never had any issues.
They aren't pointless. Sure, the cop is likely to win, but if you're honest, admit your mistake and ask for a lesser penalty, the judge will usually go easy on you. I had that happen recently on a ticket I got for running a red light. The cop lowered the ticket to "failure to yield" because of my honesty. He even said me to me, "Your candor is a breath of fresh air."
Warning bros: cool story to follow.
When I was still in college, I was at a party that the cops showed up to. I was 21 at the time, so no worries. The 2 cops separated those over and under 21 and took our IDs to run them to make sure we didn't have any outstanding warrants or anything. When he was returning the IDs, he gave everyone's back except mine. I questioned him about it. He went back to the car and could not find it. So I asked him for his name and badge number so that I may call his office the next day and see what to do... He seemed so off put that I would ask for this info. He clearly did not want to give it to me. Finally he wrote it on a card and stormed off.
Anyways, the next day my friend called. He had my license because it stuck to his as he had just got a new ID and it still had the glue on it.
