Encounter with the Fuzzzz

tonight i was driving down a main road near my college just cruising.. i looked down at my speedometer and i was goin 71 mph in a 50 ... so i say well i better slow down. and sure enough right when i start braking a fine Gastonia P.O. drives by on the opposite side and makes himself a quick uturn. he then speeds up to my bumper and then hangs out back there for a mile or so... then all out crazy lights sirens bells whistles and spotlights find themselves directed at my fine focus. well i pull over thinkin i was done for and we chat for a while and i pull the im really sorry case and he says eh... 21 over isnt all THAT much so he says have a nice night dont do it again... i cried of happiness tonight...
anyone else ever been let off so graciously like that before?

I'll give you a great one........about 9 yrs or so ago, I was like 18. My buddy and I are driving down the road at like midnight or so, WASTED and I have a beer in my hand while driving. There is a car coming in the opposite direction, I'm so hammered his lights are blinding the road.....I rapid flash him, like 30 times in a row. He yips it around and turns his lights on....DOHHH, I throw my beer to my buddy and he throws it behind my seat and when the cop comes up I tell him his lights were blinding me. He says " Oh yes, they're new lights.........." Lets me go.......Damn was I lucky, but I didn't learn, got pulled over 11 times hammered before I got mine! We all used to count how many times we got pulled over and let go wasted.......STUPID STUPID CHILDREN we were.

Umm well I got clocked doing close to 90 in a 40.....and yes it was a school zone, and no I didnt get off with a warning....What a sight it was for everyone leaving school to see me on the curb in handcuffs with two cop cars behind my car......I actually felt popular for a second....and I guess there was one time I got let off when I was like going 52 in a 40 or something and the cop let me go cause I was with my girlfriend at the time....he saw how hot she was and let me off or something lol

One time I lit my tires up going from a stop sign and cop nailed me but left me off. He had to be only like 23 and it was 3 AM. He was really cool about it. Probably could of talked him into a drag race lol!! One time however I was nailed going 100 in a 55 on the highway. Now this was in my 4 cylinder 1987 mustang. No way I could go 100 in that. Still the cop got what he wanted and I lost my license for 15 days. Big whoop best thing is my insurance agent never found out hehehe. And now it is erased from my record forever!!

Hey, hey! I'll have you know my 4-cylinder '87 Mustang goes OVER 100 plenty of times, thankyouverymuch.

Of course, that's with an extra 40 or so horses, no interior, no A/C, no carpet, no sound deadener, no spare, only one seat, etc. LOL

You pretty much gotta be a damned fool to pick this pony as your race car... but what's a Mustang fan and racer on a limited budget supposed to do?

For this type of foolish racing, check out http://www.silverhorseracing.com sometime. ;)

Sincerely,

Beetle

usually its worst case scenario when i get pulled over...but a few times i've gotten off w/ warnings...115+mph in a 55 ZX3...146mph in a 65 Firebird Formula - Cop had the same car when he was a teen...165mph in a 55mph Baby Benz I didn't stop that time.
Worst speeding ticket ever...37mph in a 35 - cop was a dick and tried telling me I have to update my registration because he thinks the color of my car is Black when its Gunmetal Gray.
