Here's a tip: The real players in this lifestyle that are single males generally do not travel in packs, and will always give a couple a chance to sit down and relax before approaching them. Try to look everyone you don't know right in the face. You are actually looking for a disguise, or someone that will not meet your gaze. If you are new to the area and hear of undercover activity, listen and be careful. People were actually making "dates" to meet each other here, and disclosing actual locations and activities in the clubs and theaters.
Don't ask me why the cops have to be so dramatic, like this is a drug bust or something. The Tampa board was the most active and let me tell you, it was smokin'!
(Seat belts, no rolling stops, etc.) Keep all signals and lights in good working order. (No unpaid parking tickets, expired or obscured tags, etc.) If you have a vanity plate, listen up: The cops know who you are and are tracking your movements.
I know of one bust that happened because of an active couple that had one.
I have a friend that drove a nice looking black Cadillac and he was stopped at least twice a week.
He didn't get a ticket each time, but it became a hassle. Sure it's petty, but still, it's something to think about.
Shining flashlights in parked cars looking for "contraband." Hassling everyone driving around in the area.
Sitting around doing "reports" and trying to rattle everyone's cage.
I have not been able to verify this new "urban legend." If anyone else has heard anything about this, please E-mail me at [email protected] a few words about your car while you're in the party zone... Always follow the rules and posted speed limits to the letter.Now, what can the theater and club owners do to make us feel a bit more comfortable? Here are just a few suggestions: Install some kind of early warning system or signal.
