This is not a choose-your-own-adventure where you get to invent your own special-snowflake rules just for you. When you get to a red light, you stop and wait for it to go green even when there are no other cars on the road. You don't run the red light and then argue with the cop who pulls you over about the fact that there were no cars there and so there should be a special exception to the rules just for you.
Similarly, in terms of the cop "getting aggressive", that's because he's probably had to deal with an endless stream of snowflakes who all want an exception made just for them because they have some really good reason for not playing by the rules. Yes, you know better and yes he's being unreasonable and yes he's heard that from the last hundred people he's had to stop and is getting really tired of it. Just play by the rules and get over it, even if you know they're wrong and unreasonable and things would be so much better if you were in charge.
