Got pulled over by a state trooper clocked me going 105 in a 65. Let me off with a warning. I told him I was trying to keep up with my friends cause I didnt know what exit to take up ahead. Told me to slow down and I was lucky I wasnt going to jail along with my friends....

I know he didnt have a good lock on me because I was only going 90 behind my friend in his S-10.. gov. wont let him get past 95. He must of had a lock on one of my other friends in there mercedes or STI that we were tyring to keep up with.

That same evening my friend with his STI dropped about a mile behind us so he could top it out. We were his look out for cops well when he flew past me at 150 or so a cop was just getting on the highway. A streak of white flew past the sheriffs deputy and the officer got off at the next exit.... I guess that counts as getting off, or really really lucky.

I was running a red light while changing lanes from a left-turn only lane to the straight lane, cut somebody off, doing 90 in a 40, with illegal tint done the previous day, all at the same time.

I used to drive pretty recklessly. The off-duty cop pulled me over, asked why I was in such a hurry [said i was headed to a friend's house, had to piss really bad - true], and then he let me off without so much as a written warning :D

He did follow me to my friend's house though, but it's all good :D

I was picking up a car out of town for a local dealership (Mustang Cobra, Brand New) and was booting down the highway, no clue on speed but well over the speed limit.

RCMP came up behind me, gave me a hell of a shock story telling me how much shit I was in, then actually told me that the license plate fell off (stupid vinyl bags with the strap that goes around the trunk post) so he gave me back the plate, not sure how he knew it was me or I was in this direction unless by chance he seen if fall off and then tried to catch up or something.

Funny, no ticket.... it was one of the first couple in Canada so the car was 'rare' at the time...... he took a good look at the car, even sat in it and rev'd it a bit.....lol

when i was 17....bout 15 years ago, lol......I jumped my Nissan Sentra across an intersection (light was green and it was 2am). Wouldnt you know it, a city cop was there to see it.

Got pulled over and out of the car, thats when the sobriety test took place. I aced it, of course. When asked to recite the alphabet, I did it backwards and he just sent me back to my car.

Comes back and says, "well, jason, I gotta hand it to you. I have never seen anyone clear that intersection before. You must have been a good two feet off the ground. You arent intoxicated, so I am glad for that and I cut you a break. Slow it down and get home safe." He did actually hand me a ticket...but for "Failure to Keep Right", cause i was in the left lane with no traffic. I think I amused him enough that he felt like being nice...must have been bored that night.

Twice, but only when I was young. They don't seem to want to give breaks any more.

I've been pulled over 5 times that I can recall all let off with a warning. No fancy stories but I've been pulled over for no front place, excessive acceleration, driving on the shoulder in front of a sign saying 'DO NOT DRIVE ON SHOULDER,' and going 65 in a 55. Now I can't remember the 5th time...but funny thing is I got pulled over by a bicycle cop for excessive acceleration.
