    They aren't allowed to pump their own gas either.

    Or hold sharp objects.

    I just experienced the gas too. We pull out and he knocks on our window to hand us the receipt and says here free car wash. But it turned out it was $11. We didn’t ask for a car wash!

    I think at any one point there are 3 or 4 Troopers on the road in the whole state. Just sayin’ :chuck:

    On behalf of all sane Oregonians, I apologize.

    Sadly, it's a fairly narrow list of Oregonians, I'm sure :bergman:

    Also, get your gas at Fred Meyer (especially if you troll Ralph's or FoodsCo/Food4Less) or Costco.

    You should be fairly safe driving at a more reasonable speed though - the fuzz is fairly easy to spot here in Oregon; just look for yellow license plates :async:
