Default I have never had this much fun doing the exact speed limit

I am driving back from the beach today with my mom in the car and who should get behind me? One of Waterford's finest of course. Now I don't know about your towns but in mine the cops have very little regard for posted speed limits, stop sighns, traffic lights, and ... well you get the idea. Me being me I drop to the exact posted limit and not a mile above, just to anoy him mind you. Now I am making it very clear that I'm doing this just to piss him off and my mom is finding this rather amusing. Every stop sighn I fully stop and wait, sometimes more than I should. As soon as the road doubles he passes me so out of sheer curiosity I *** my speed to the generaly accepted 10+. This guy is going at least 25+ until he hits slow traffic and has to ride his breaks for a good 10 seconds. When we come to a traffic light he blows right through the red with out a pause.

If only we could write them ticket eh? :wink:

I had a similar incident going the speed of traffic (approx 90km/h - 56mph) on a rural road through the indian territory where the speed limit was for some reason set at 50km/h (30mph), although the provincial highway on either end of the territory has a 90km/h limit. Anyway, so all of a sudden I spot a Crown Victoria with police markings pulling out of a driveway...

Never thought that section of road was so long!

I hate it when cops follow me. I am very bad at keeping my speed down. This is especially true in my mom's Jetta. The weight of my shoes alone can press the gas petal down.

Good job screwing with the cop.

when a cop follows me on a country road I start to slow down and then put on the E flashers and pull over for like 3 minutes.Then the road is clear and then its loud pedal time!

Around here they'd stop behind you just to look for drugs in your car.
