A highway patrolman was a police officer whose regular duty was to patrol up and down a highway.
In 1930, a highway patrolman in Lee's Summit had apparently stopped a number of cars without proper license tags. According to a statement he made to a New York City newspaper, the most common excuse for motorists driving with out of date tags was because they expected to be drafted and didn't want to waste money on licensing a car they wouldn't be able to use. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")
