Up comes this cop probably doing 85 and lights start blaring and this chick cop steps out when I pull over. License and registration, please. WTF? Sure, here you go. Do you know why I pulled you over? Gee, because I have a lifted D90 with camping crap all over it? No, I don't know. Because you were in the left lane and not actively passing anyone.
Bullshit. She was just fuking with me to see if I was up to mischief. I may not have been actively passing anyone, but I was going faster than the right lane and I had a car the exact speed as me 1.5 seconds ahead of me. I did not argue it--she was just giving me a written warning, but I have never had this happen in any other vehicle. Just no cool factor with this cop. Sometimes I feel so discriminated against! And, fortunately, I was not up to mischief yet. Sheesh!
Nice! I didn't know they actually had vilolations for such things. How are 'grannys' still on the road then?
I had an Ohio cop pull me over for not using my Left-turn signal when I was in a left-turn lane, I turned left after the left-turn traffic light came on. 4 seconds later, lights are flashing. WTF??? Long and the short, it was a young cop that I deduced based on his questions was merely interested in what I was driving and needed an excuse to find out. Didn't get a ticket or a stern warning, just a 'in awe' nice truck. LOL
