Re: Got pulled over by the Fuzz

Well a funny thing happened to me the other night.
Firstly no flamming as I know there is a time and a place for shenanigans and this wasn't it!
Cruising home after a night out. Still wet from the down poor that got me on the way up.
Going down a three way highway just near my home, I'm in lane 3. Two cars next to me decide to drag, ok continue on my merry way. I then quickly aproach a bombed out Mazda with no lights on. It's 11 at night.
He's going half the speed limit and swerving all over the shop. So I see my chance and accelerate away.
I then go to turn off and he's up my clack. Theres no traffic around and I decided I wasn't going to let this drunk f wit take me out.
So I accelerate away, and start hitting the straps, by this short time I fly past the dragging loosers and my speedo shows 180km/hr. (not sure in miles)
I start to slow down and see a car pulling out onto the highway.
I turn round the corner and come to a stop at the red light.
That's when a car comes up behind me with it's high beams on. I'm like fook it's the Mazda again road raging, nope this car has red and blue lights!
It was an unmarked car and a single detective inside. So instantly become the most curtious and polite customer he's had all day
How are you tonight
'wet and cold sir' (still hadn't dried out)
Going a bit fast weren't you
Told him the whole story
Then the usual license and rego stuff. He then askes me when my last speeding infrigment was. I said I've never had one (which is true)
He goes into his car and I'm like bye bye bike bye bye job
Comes back and tells me that s a warning check your speed next time. He's gone before I even get my license back in my wallet.
The thing that saved me was that he had no radar to check my speed and he was stationary as well so he couldn't estimate my speed.
LESSON LEARNED I've really taken this on board and like I said before time and a place, that wasn't it.
I was risking my bike and license, no license no job. Bye bye career I've worked my butt off for 4 years to get too.
So yeah a big wake up call and I'm very grateful for it

For '05 I promised myself I would practice tolerance...so if people would quit being so STUPID I'll be more tolerant.

Re: Got pulled over by the Fuzz

Sounds like you got lucky. In the US they don't necessarily have to put a speed down. 'Excessive speed' is ample enough....in these parts anyway.

Go buy a lottery ticket

Damn! *Things are quite different 'Down Under'! *

Forgot to add: Glad you didn't get cited Will. That would have been a crappy way to start your driving record, plus you didn't deserve it. Can you say, victim of circumstance?

You should join the Victorian Police Force *We need more like you Bacc
The Mazda was the reason to accelerate off but it was my choice to continute to go faster so.....lucky.
Cop bought the whole thing as when I was stopped to turn right and he was behind me one of the dragging cars stopped at the green light thinking he was gone too! *Then he just drove off!

Oh sorry 3 laned highway
