… Give me a ticket
I was heading on my way home on the highway at like 2 am feeling kind of sleepy and tired, when Metallica Fuel comes on the radio. Perfect! I look around and there are no cars or bikes for miles on an empty stretch road so I decided to put the pedal to the metal! I hit around 120mph all in good fun, when I zoomed by a cop car… Out of all the days. I slammed the brakes a little too hard so the car slid a little, but nothing major.
So these two cops come over ask for my stuff and told me they clocked me at 108mph(I had slowed down a little when I passed them). He checks my license, and asks me if I live on this and this street? I am like sure do. I din’t ask him why at that moment, I was mostly thinking how screwed I am but I am pretty sure this cop lives in my community… Then the other cop asks if I have any weapons in the vehicle. I say no, then he leaves for a while.
They return, he hands me my stuff and he hands me my ticket to sign. I look at it and there is no amount I had to pay so I ask him “What happened? Couldn’t fit in all the zeros?” he got pissed.(I had to get in at least one smartass comment, he kept saying things that were simply not true, but I was not going to argue with someone that clocked me doing over 100+).
I have a spot free record. Unfortunately the judges here in my county are horrible. But I deserved it, I just wished the cop was a little more lenient and had drop my speed to 99.
Some cops are just assholes, but there are those few that are pretty awesome. I had a friend get pulled over for testing his M3 on the highway at night with no cars doing 145mph. A cop pulls him over and says, “How fast can you go with this? You know I won’t write you a 3 digit ticket right?” Where was that cop when I needed him lol.
