    ...if I was on parole.

    I've been ticketed 4 times in 30 years of driving (registration sticker, left turn on red, and twice failure to stop at an invisible stop sign.) Each entire interaction was polite and no-one ever asked if I was on parole.

    I have at least 1 blood relative, who is as pale white as I am, who is in fact on parole/probation and has never been asked that question. I don't think we need to guess what's going on here.
