I didn't have time to post last night.

I pulled off a side road near one of our state parks. The speed limit there is 45. I was preoccupied with trying to find the Illinois basketball game. I had not gone very far. 500 feet maybe. I glanced down at my speedometer and saw I was already at 60 mph so I tapped my brakes. I was at the top of a hill and the park entrance was at the bottom of the hill.

So was the State Trooper. First his headlites popped on the his flashing lites. I found a spot and pulled over.

When he got to my car he asked if I knew why I was pulled over. I said that I thought I knew. I said when I saw my speed was around 60 I tapped my breaks. he told me I was doing 61 in a 45.

He asked for all the usual stuff. Drivers license and proof of ins. I gave him an expired ID. He pointed that out. So I tossed it over my shoulder into the back seat. I handed him the other one I had he said it begins in about 5 days. He said I assume you are insured. I told him I sure hope so since I am the insurance agent. He chuckled a bit. I pulled out a third ID. This is one that I printed off the company's website a few months ago to take the place of the missing ID. Since it didn't look like the first two he took a little time studying it.

The young man went back to his car and after about 3-4 minutes he came back and handed me my license and told me to drive more carefully.

I said "Yes Sir." As he walked away I said I won't look for the IL game on the radio any more either. He chuckled again.

In the past 40 years I have been pulled over many many times. (None in the past 5 years or so.) This is only the second time I have been given a pass. The other time I was only about 10 over. If I had been going faster that officer said he would have given me the ticket.

I suppose not lying helped. Having him see me put on my brakes before I saw him was probably a good thing. Not having any tickets for a while. Being an older fart surely helped.

And fluffy Gabriel Iglesias is right. make em laugh. Whistle

The last speeding ticket I got I was thrilled to just get that. I had just left Hooters smelling like Tiajuana. Can't believe that young dumbass cop couldn't smell the Tequila. I wouldn't even bother to call Mrs. Dakota in that situation. I have plenty of buddies that owe me that particular favor.

Well....so far....i have NEVER received a speeding ticket. In fact, the only tickets i have were "fix it" tickets for lights not working.

Yeah, the blonde locks bring the cops in, the face of Paul Williams sends them running back to their car. Rolling On The Floor Laughing

Let's be real. The job of a cop is to make money for the area. When he heard you're an independent insurance agent, that sealed the deal. You got no money, so why bother with the paperwork?
