    This cop thought he was in bad boys!

    So, driving down the road.. All of a sudden I see a cop car so I check my speed, I'm a little over so i slow down a little.. 2kms down the road I see another coming towards me, I'm maintaining my speed then he all of a sudden swerves into my lane and stops sideways, lights and sirens on.. I have to slam the brakes and I am like WTF! then look behind me there is another cop a wee bit away, roughly just under a KM with lights on.. Turns out they thought i was running from them.. yeah right lol, I end up with a 100 dollar ticket for being 12kms over! The way that first cop acted you would think I was being busted for being a murderer or some crazy shit. He hangs about for a couple mins while my ticket is being written up and drives off. The second cop who was behind me apparently called for backup.. SERIOUSLY?!

    What a start to the day! thankfully no demerits.

    It sounds as though you were in Hazzard County and pulled up by Roscoe P Coltrane and Enos. Slow down SK. The old saying "the speed that thrills is the speed that kills" is as true today as it was when I was hooning around in a Mark 1

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Given the negative publicity surrounding incidents where drivers attempt and occasionally succeed in killing themselves when doing a runner, cops are obviously needing to use different strategies than the old chase em from behind technique.

    Cops are human too. Move on I say. So they were a bit OTT, big deal. You were speeding, you got a ticket.
    Considering our boys (and girls in blue) regularly get assaulted (not to mention shot at now) I don't blame the guy at all. For all you know there could be some local thug driving exactly the same vehicle.

    If you ask me what he did what a fair bit more dangerous that being 12kms over =/ I know cops get a lot of shit but doesn't mean they gotta be paranoid and over react over minor infractions, A paranoid cop is a dangerous cop. I remember a few years ago in LA one pulled a gun on me for standing in the wrong spot or something.. I am not denying I was in the wrong but damn! First time infraction to =/ had my bike license for 4 years!
