    "Gentleman of the Road"

    Has the meaning of this changed?

    Yesterday I got pulled over for a vehicle inspection. The car was my daily driver a 1994 Nissan 200SX S13. It's slightly crusty, 3" turbo back stainless exhaust.

    So one policeman asks my details and makes sure I know who I am while the other does a circuit of the car. Gets back from the circuit and says to his mate, "We don't need to keep him any longer, "Gentleman of the Road" has his winter tyres on". Matched set of Toyo Winter Proxes.

    What does a policeman mean by "Gentleman of the Road"?

    Have I been called a tramp or Highwayman?

    probably just trying to catch people in crap old cars with obvious defects to dish out some easy fines.

    Its not often they get to say that, most of the time they are uttering the catchphrase "****s on 4 wheels" to German car drivers.

    I think that's about the highest compliment a Traffic policeman can pay a 'civilian'.

    That's what I was worried about.
