    Hmmm I guess I shouldn't be so paranoid then...

I am pretty sure all the cops know what they are. I would assume they have covered them in one of their copper meetings at some point with the massive rise in popularity over the last few years.
    I wonder if the info cops might have on ecigs is location specific... ya know, if they're more likely to know in one area but not another. Hopefully that "copper meeting" was held country-wide!

An unknown liquid in an unmarked bottle would be suspicious.

    I've vaped in front of cops in stores and parking lots and they don't even look twice. I think that they are trained well enough in spotting the illegal hardware that they know the difference. I have lots of individuals ask me what that thing is, but never a cop.
    I do carry vendor cards with me explaining what a PV is. That's a good idea about the ejuice bottle. I'll have to do that if I'm using a tank and mod; if I get brave enough to use one of my vtubes on the road, which this thread is helping with.

    A place like the boon docks of Maine..... I wouldn't have as much confidence that the cops knew what was going on. If your in Long Island, I would imagine the cops are very well informed but that is just my assumption..... and you know what happens when you assume....

    I like that avatar btw.... I have always wanted a pet cub tiger.

    I drive most of the day, everyday. Always have two Reo Mini's in the car, they look nothing like analogs. Cops are not looking for strange things people do, just unsafe and illegal things. Vaping is no more a distraction than drinking a beverage in your car nor is it cumbersome (I drive a stick). There is nothing to be paranoid about as your are not doing anything illegal, I"m sure a cop does not want to take the time to pull you over and waste ten minutes to discuss your e-cig. This is America and for the most part you can pretty much do whatever you want. I do vape in bars that allow smoking and do get strange looks and questions, but most folks are just curious.

    My opinion: Live your live, do as you please and don't worry about what anyone else thinks, says, or does. As long as your are not hurting anyone or breaking the law you have the right to vape without worry.

    Take it easy-n-at,
    Jeff

    Yeah, they may very well be. Maybe not as much as the metro area, but we're still pretty New-York-minute on the island.
    Thx! I have a cat obsession and Siberian tigers are one of my fave wild cats. I like your avatar, too!

    Very true. Things get a lil tense at the end of the month, though, with the ticket quota cops have to meet. Then again, they're mostly hiding out by stop signs in residential areas.
    Wow. You vape and drive a stick? You are one talented vaper/driver!

    Not really my friend, one becomes accustomed to things. Like I said, I'm in the car most of the day every day. I know when and where my sunglasses will fall off the dash (usually catch them) and just how sharp of a turn will cause my rio to tip over on the console and instictively support it through the turn. It's not much different than someone reaching for a tissue as they sneeze.

    True, true. I have only been vaping for 3 months so it's not programmed into me yet; pressing the button and all... Not nearly as programmed as smoking was for me. I'm still a lil awkward with the analog look-alike. Probably will take some time. And I drive an automatic. (Just about the only "feature" of my car. Hyundai Accent '10.) Though it is getting easier... I don't really think about what I'm doing anymore while I'm vaping. But I'm sure my brain will be confused when I mix in driving with it (or it with driving?).
    But you're most certainly right; one does become accustomed to things. Pretty fast, too, if we're doing it on a daily basis.

    My truck is a stick and I drip n' drive. I'm not proud of it and I certainly don't recommend it but I know what I like. As far as what's discussed at a "Copper Meeting", I can't imagine (donuts vs bagels). I definately don't hide it and usually drip after a stop or in slow traffic situations. I've tried cartos, RA's, and tanks (Lots) but prefer the mouth feel, throat hit and flavor of a standard atty at around 5 volts. I have a cool e-pipe that I put tanks and cartos on (not in the truck) and am trying to mend my drippin' ways with 808 fusion cartos and such. Don't be scared homey! Vape like ya mean it! Most cops are reasonable and can usually be reasoned with if you keep a cool head. I just thought of another potential problem with my drippin' somebody mentioned. I carry 3 or 4 / 1.5 dram glass dropper vials (unlabled) of juice and may have to curb taht. Good luck.
