I have been stopped eight times by the Seattle Police Department. I wasn't speeding nor did I have an issue with my car.
Four stops occurred in my neighborhood: two on Beacon Hill and one near the intersection of Rainier Avenue and Martin Luther King Way. I was never ticketed but always asked, “Do you live in this neighborhood” or “Where are you going?”
