You get what you deserve!!

Well I was on the way home and a buddy I work with passed me going WAY to fast. I was doing the speed limit for once and decided to break out and try to get him to slow down, anyway I slowed him down a good bit but not enough. Right over the top of the hill was a State trooper, got my friend at 79 in a 65 and myself at 75 in a 65.

Moral of the story, no good deed goes unpunished. I did the speed and got busted I'm not bitching and saying the cop was a PITA in fact he was one of the most pleasant cops I have dealt with despite the ticket, it just kills me that I was TRYING to help a friend and look what it got me. So what do you all, think was the speeding to slow down a friend a justified reason or should I let him get busted at triple digit speeds? I did not tell the cop why we were speeding like that b/c of the whole idea he would NEVER actually believe it.

Jon

Now, if you both had SYNC, you could have just called his a@@ on the fly and told him to cool it...

I knew cops were patrolling the area, a new state trooper office is coming up on that road and they tend to be there a lot now. To be honest like I said he did slow down from triple digits to 79, so speeding up to flash at him DID work just not soon enough.

I actually saw the cop first, he thought it was a car broke down on median so I hit the brakes first and then my friend started to slow down.
