The ticket was issued while Monique Lukens was scouting a location for the Raw Vegan Limo Outreach on the PCH one night after midnight. We feel although the traffic stop safety issue doesn't "specifically" deal with "non-human" animals, the issue is indirectly related to many of us, who have been financially penalized in the past for our activism work - tickets which are simply "made-up" due to misuse of power. I know I received a ticket of sorts several years ago, and it took a year and a half to overturn it after speaking at 2 Beverly City Council Meetings and going twice to court (audio clips from this http://MySpace.com/MoniqueMarissaAKAUniqueMoniqueMusic). Also, many of us drive with pets in our vehicles.  These animals are as vulnerable as we are when stopped by law enforcement in compromised areas. We feel it is so important for all of us to have the right to drive to a well lit, public populated area if pulled over by law enforcement.

Animal activists encounter law enforcement frequently. Our wish is for more law enforcers to promote understanding towards us, and we have acted on this intention in the past along with others by outreaching to them vegan style at this: http://facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.175184196061.153465.738736061

As fellow vegans we are reaching out for your support on this human, and indirectly non-human animal related issue as well. This will be our last message regarding the 6pm Wed. meeting where you can take the opportunity to have your voice heard if you should choose.

Thank you,

Monique Lukens
