Yeah, that was close

Driving home from work today, I was in the passing lane (my favorite) not really paying attention to how fast I was going, when what to my wondering eyes should appear? Flashing lights in my rearview mirror.
I pull to the side with a grumble and groan, turn off my car and hang up the phone.
Okay enough rhyming...anyway, the cop walks up to the side as I think "someone just knick him with your car" (no such luck) and gives the usual.."do you know why I pulled you over?" Geez, does anyone actually say "for going 90 in a 70 zone?"
He takes my paperwork back to his car, sits there for about 15 minutes then comes back and says "I'm going to let you off with a warning today, Happy Valentines Day, and slow down" whewwwww!

I've only gotten 1 ticket in my life about 10 years ago, for running a red (I say orange) light.

Any other lead footers in here? I am the most impatient person you could ever meet, it drives me nuts to be behind a slowpoke.

Wow that was close. I wonder if it would have turned out different if it was a day earlier. :)

I used to be pretty heavy on the gas when I had a faster car but lately I don't speed much if at all. I have a nice 0 ticket record and I want to keep it that way for as long as I can.

Once I get a sports car I might have more of a tendency to speed though. The thing I'm driving now really is no fun to speed in anyway.

Your really lucky. It's very rare that they do that because most cops are jerks. I hate to say this but the women(cops) are the worst.

wow...sometimes speeding happens without realization. glad to hear he was a good cop and was cool courtesy of this bogus holiday.
I've been in friends cars when they were pulled over, but never been pulled over myself. I usually end up going around five over the speed limit, which is basically negligible to cops.

I haven't really been driving for very long, so I don't have any good stories to tell. It'd be pathetic if I already have a ticket though. I tend to go around 5 over the limit and maybe 10 if no one's around.

I wanted one of those detectors that told you if a cop was nearby, but my mom wouldn't let me.
