Flashing blue lights in my mirror

I got pulled over by a mis-informed cop for driving an unlicensed scooter.
Turns out I was legal.

So I tried to complain and this was their response. (I used two browsers... its on their end)

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'
ActiveX component can't create object: 'CDONTS.NewMail'
/web5-2/communication/ofcemail.asp, line 49

and still broken after the vacation.

Can you explain the cop's thinking? Did he suspect your hogg of being a 'bit too powerful' for the unlicensed class?

No he missed the word "without" in the description of a moped. A moped is 50cc or lower with or WITHOUT pedals. He was under the impression that since I did not have petals, I was on a motorcycle. Even pulled out GA code. I printed out all of the relevant laws, and now carry it in the trunk for the silly cops. He only gave me a warning, so I didn't argue with him, I was late for a meeting.

oh, and I wasn't speeding (too much, relative to normal speeds on that road, I was holding up traffic if anything and he should have pulled someone else over, that was my first thought)
