Got an interesting piece of information from my mom today. Apparently she saw a "little red clunker" with someone pulled over on 190 (runs north from Worcester). To top it off, the trooper was a young-ish woman with a blonde pony tail in plain clothes. There's no question that this was legit because she was out of the car and her gun was clearly visible. This was just a week or so ago.
I'm not gonna lie, if had run into something like this in MA I would have thought long and hard before actually pulling over.
