Motorcycle cops pull me over to say hello! Freaks my friends out.

Get a ticket waste two hours or give 200 pesos. I am all in for 200 pesos. My time is worth more!
Sorry to hear all this.

And as noted, since you don't get a ticket (unless of course you're in the very different situation of having committed a violation and deserve one), that kind of nullifies your final argument.

But hey, as Sogno has also noted, it's all about you! So as long as you're happy, I guess.

Still, seems like someone who not only lives here but runs a business here (right?) would care a bit more about the area and its people than what is evidenced by this sort of post...
