If the music volume is really very LOUD, then its fine. It sometimes causes a lot of disturbance specially at traffic signals. IMO, its not entirely wrong move. But if this move is misused by cops, then its wrong.

Damn!

Zak, his daadi and his Qualis have enough trouble from the cops as it is - during the recent 'bomb scare' a.k.a 'dumb scare' in Kerala they didnt believe that the 'box' between his front seats was a sealed sub enclosure and demanded that he open it up. One of the cops finally put his hands under the console to feel the sub after he said he couldnt remove it.

Thats a regular annoyance for me. Bomb scare or not.

First place is SEEPZ SEZ. Whenever I am exiting that place, customs officers and security guards are all over the car trying to figure out what I am trying to "smuggle" out of the place.

Second place is 5 star hotels. During their mandatory vehicle check at the gates, everyone has a puzzled look on their faces when they see the arrangement in the trunk.

With that beard, and electronic gizmos, zak is a sitting target in event of a security check!!!

BTW, why could'nt they trust us when we simply turn up the volume?

Loud music is always a problem - fine for this is not new; but I am not sure if there is a specific criteria and how the cop judges it. But in a way it is a right move.

gizmos getting confused for bombs - poor cops! how tech savvy do you expect them to be? These days their jobs are most dificult.

That pic looks awesome ... and sure you can not blame the poor naive cops for their suspicions.
