First trip last summer in my HR Navigator with a 1999 Jeep Cherokee toad, I was tooling along at speed limit in Illinois, passed a State in the median. In about a mile he was behind me and the lights came on. I pulled over, he came up on the passenger side where the door is and told me that the muffler on the toad was dragging. Sure enough, I had just purchased the old jeep and it is a little rough, but perfect for a toad and to do some rough country exploration. I told the police that I would just pull the muffler out, he watched as I did, said have a good day, never asked for paperwork. Hid only comment was I thought you would pull off on the exit ramp. He did not give me enough warning to make the ramp without seriously getting on the brakes, I never make a quick move when driving, and especially when running this large of a rig.
Point is like in any profession there is a range of performance, I got one of the common sense ones!
