Yikes!

Last week I worked in the warrants/tickets division at the Sheriff's Office...and I couldn't believe how high ($) the tickets were!
I sure hope it wasn't too bad...

Tell me about it! I was cruising up US 101 a few days ago at a sedate 75mph (limit was 65) when I look in my rear view mirror and what do I see, but a Washington Sate Patrol car blasting up behind me with lights and siren going.

I had a few choice words as I slid over into the right lane expecting him to follow, but to my surprise he flew right past me! Guess he had bigger fish to fry.

I honestly thought my streak was over too. I've managed to make it an entire 18 months with out getting a ticket.... er..... um.... make that 3 years. Or so insurance thinks.:)

Hail the radar detector! It has saved me a few times from a possible ticket. I got 2 in the C5 before getting the RD, none in the GS (it's a convertible, you're never in a hurry in those :) ).

Ah, but I came close one time. I went tearing out after turning left onto the street. Blazing up the overpass I spotted a sheriff's car fast approaching in the rearview mirror (I had stopped accelerating). So I let up and slid into a lower gear to slow down without braking and by the time he got up to me I was doing the law-abiding speed limit. He sat on my tail for a mile before turning away. What a joyride! :D :bu

GS 1, cops 0. :L
