I was comming home from a car meet, and decided to show my friend how fast my fast really is.
So i turned on to a back road \, and gave it all it had. When i reached 100 mph, i saw a car pull out into the other lane, but i decided that it wasnt a big deal. When i passed him i realized that it was a police officer, so i downshifted several gears and got down to the speed limit before he turned around. When he pulled me over he told me that i was under arrest for reckless endangerment. I asked him how fast he clocked me at and he said that he didnt. He said i didnt clock you i just saw you and heard you. Then i responded "then all you have on me is an exhaust ticket then isnt it???"After i said this he searched my fast without a warrent, and when he didnt find anything he said i could leave. What kind of bull**** harrassment was this???

Damn, you got lucky...I never would have gone up against a cop, they are pretty severe in my area.

I have a similar story, almost 3 years ago I got pulled over by a cop after having "raced" (I passed him in a couple seconds and then just continued without accelerating) a friend.

The cop had been following us for several blocks, watching us speed up and after taking a right onto a back-road, he turned his lights. Scariest night of my life...lol
The guy was cool though apparently I was doing 71 on a 30, which should have been reckless endangerment, but he said he would let me off with 69MPH instead and would only make me pay a fine as long as I drove straight home. (he followed me till I parked my car in my garage and then left)

I ended up paying $380 (instead of the $570 for 71MPH) and getting 7 points off my license.

Since then I have never raced and have matured!

my fast has gotten me in trouble numerous times. After gettin two tickets in 3 weeks, one of them should of been wreckless 79 in a 55 i thought i would of learnt my lesson. But i constantly catch myself not speeding for extended periods of time, but jus flooring it then noticing im doin 100. For the next 5mins i spend most of it watchin my rearview mirror.

praying that my lack of selfcontrol hasnt gotten me nailed.

my car is called abby, short of abnegate which means to resists..... yep, resistance is pointless. She always gets the better of me

I do speed on the highway, not going overly fast, maybe 85-90 in a 65 zone but thats just because I got a radar detector...doesn't work well in the city but on the highway it gives a clear warning well in advance coverage front and back

I Had One That Went Off Every Time I Was By A Store. Later To Find Out That The Detector Would Pick Up Eather The Scanner Thing For The Barcodes Or The Detectors By The Door. You Know The Security Divice Things.

Got That After I Got 2 Tickets In 2 Days For Doing 80 In A 30. Got Lucky Though The Cops Know My Dad And Gave Me Tickets For 45 In A 30. On Both Of Them. That Was In My 83 Chevy El Camino

Dam you got real lucky where i live i would have gone to jail that night just for getting smart with a cop last time i did i got slammed to the back of my car (which i had just waxed ha) and put in cuffs and thrown on the ground i really hate cops they have no morals in my book all they care about this their quotas

And i got a real story of harassments to my friends got pulled over in front of their house like as soon as they turned the car just for having 30% tints which is illegal in MD

Yea the cop also called my parents and told then I was going over 100mph!!! I was unaware that going 50over got a call home
Justin- call it even. Even know the cop may have called your folks, you didn't get arrested (and in FL they can seize your car for **** like that) and you didn't get a ticket.

If you were out here in CA, you'd expect to at least loose your license for a year and have your insurance go through the friggin' roof.

Just remember- as much of a jerk the cop was- he gave you one hell of a break. Don't expect the same next time. Go buy a lottery ticket.

:cool:

Just gotta be careful with that stuff. We have speeding laws for a reason after all. Everyone thinks it'll never happen to them, but believe it when it does, and you're crippled or dead....just to go a little faster than the speed limit, showing off, etc, etc. Just be weary of what the consequences can be.

My Fast got me in trouble last week lol. I named her Lilith, the temptress from Sumerian myths. Luckly the cop let me off. He got me going 90 in a 65. When he pulled me over he asked how long i had the car. I told him about 3 weeks, then he asked me if it was fun :D. He asked if I knew why he stopped me, I told him I had an idea. Then he told me to slow down and let me off. Nicest cop I have ever met. LOL
