Slight hijack from LOL pics...

I got pulled over about 15 years ago, for the first time in 20 years. I was driving home from work, finally broke out of the pack and was approaching a known police on the shoulder zone. I slowed around the bend and there he was. After I was out of his view, I jumped on it only to find another car around the next bend. I pull over, hands on wheel with windows open and engine off. I grabbed my wallet before he got to the car and have it in my lap and tell him I am reaching in the glove box for my insurance and reg. I hand over my insurance, reach for the registration and the freakin plastic cover on the folder containing the registration is literally stuck to it, I can't get it out. So we move to the wallet for the license, which is strategically placed under PBA cards. I'm trying to pull it out and there are PBA cards flying EVERYWHERE but I have yet to get to the license. I finally get it. I'm getting flustered thinking he is losing patience. Now back to the registration. After several minutes, I'm finally able to free the registration. He takes everything and goes to his car. I'm cursing myself that I blew it. All these damn PBA cards and my gift of gab and batting eyelashes and I said NADA.

He comes back a few minutes later and asks if I want to tell my story now about all the PBA cards or if he is going to have to wait for the phone call he will get tomorrow morning. I told him I'm sorry, I haven't been pulled over in 20 years and the whoop whoops made me so nervous I lost my power of speech. He cracked up and proceeded to tell me how to act and what to say in the future when I got pulled over.

It was pretty funny.

Hijack over. You may return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Not that it isn't still the individuals fault if he rear ends her...but I like how you've come up with an inventive way of how women can make driving more challenging. Kudos!

Truth be told, I can pretty much twist anything to be a little jab, just to play in your mind a little more, for it is a wonderful place to play.

But I actually agree with you here...a downshift can be useful if driving stick, but it really doesn't scrub off a whole lot of speed, so only useful if you are slightly in excess of the grace zone.

If you are really speeding, throw out the anchor and hope that the cop wasn't doing radar and doesn't have a reading. Or assumes you are really quite sorry and will be a model citizen from now on and doesn't invite you to a little roadside conversation about bad habits acquired and the consequences of such.

This advise only works on highways with at least 2 lanes of travel in the same direction. Try to stay in the pack, look for a rabbit (someone who is driving as fast as you or a little faster can keep them out in front of you), and have radar detector.


When you see or detect the police are present, try to make the other cars around you look like they are going faster. Most time police are not pay 100% attention to traffic, they set up the radar gun to alert them when someone exceed the speed they want to write a ticket for. When the alert goes off they look up and see which car is most likely speeding. It is usually the one passing other cars. By slowing down enough to make the car next you look like they are passing you the police will focus on them first. This is not 100% but I have done this enough times that there are a number of people walking around with my ticket.


This does not work with Laser since the police focus on a single car to measure the speed verses blasting ever car on the highway with Radar and tying to figure out which car sent back the speed they are seeing on the radar gun.

Obviously nothing about CaliHP. I was in a pack. We all came over the rise and saw the fine, outstanding officer on the side of the road. I lifted, everyone else's nose dove into the ground. Guess how i know he was such a fine officer? He asked for my autograph

Especially if you are trying to "rev match" and completely botch it up!

Why do all your posts leave me looking sideways and reading trying to understand WTF you're talking about?

I said my SO is LEO and I'm a cougar? What went over my head? Is it just me?

Actually, according to Ricky Gervais, Leonardo Dicaprio much prefers the company of young women. Apparently. Not that I'm saying anything about cmyx6go ...just that it wouldn't be a cougar that attracts him...

We each have our own individual spheres in which we feel comfortable. You have yours, and I have the higher echelons of the english language that I'm comfortable in. To each their own!

See my post. I'm adept at translating various members here. It all started with Lups.

He's using a play on LEO to be Leonardo Dicaprio. A man who is significantly younger than Monsieur Wede. I imagine, as such, he thinks anyone who is with Leo must be a cougar...somehow...haven't quite got that link straight in my head just yet...but I think so...

Oh...so when she told you to buy the Porsche, you looked at her sideways trying to figure out what she was saying? Or did that one compute just fine?

I'm pretty sure I know what my response would be if my wife told me to go buy a P-car.
