How long has it been since you were pulled over by a Police cruiser?

Topic.

I haven't been pulled over for any random breath/drug test or for any tickets for 8 months.

Due note I live in QLD, Australia, am not on P plates and haven't exactly followed protocol after modifying my car thus on Police automatic scanners it shows up as a stock standard NA Focus.

I do however have a flag for speeding (I had lead boots as a teenager), but that hasn't seemed to affect my interaction with the governing bodies.

How often do you expect to see Police activity where you live?

I see patrol officers everyday, no big deal for me. You must have a guilty conscience. Haven't been pulled over in decades......

Pulled over about outside of Houston about a year ago. Was going 'slightly' over the limit with light traffic, so I simply got a verbal warning. Turned out the officer was 'car guy' and was real cool to deal with and I thanked him for being out there. Have not received any kind ticket in almost 30 years.

How long has it been since you were pulled over by a Police cruiser?

The CHP & local PDs are all over out here & I see them daily. I've only been pulled over one time in my life, when I was 19, so a very long time ago.
