driving home last night, from a friends house, i was making an effort to drive the speed limit because we saw a cop on that road the night before.
i cross an intersection doing 45 in, get this. a 45 zone.
i head down the road a little, and it's empty, then all of a sudden i see this pair of head / fog lights rolling up about a 1/4 mile back, pretty fast. i slowed down a little cause i let my speed creep up after that intersection. and this guy keeps comming, and when he starts to get close. i decide to punch it cause hes going to hit me.
we're about 50 .. im 3rd gear full throttle, and hes still right on me. so i start looking for a place to pull off the road and the same time i put on my blinker to get out of his way, the world lights up, and guess what. the world ISN'T BLUE. BUT COP LIGHTS ARE.
he tags me for 76 in a 35 by pacing. also tickets me for reckless driving, and has me call my parents to take me home. thank god they were there, cause otherwise i would have spent the night in jail and had my car towed and impounded.
heres what makes me mad --
cop: whos car is this
me: it's mine, sir.
cop: *in a general snotty tone* oh, this is /your/ car. well why don't you go ahead and get your parents on the phone, cause your not driving anymore tonight.
so basicly i get ticketed for trying not to get hit. great cop work, seriously. my hats off to you.
oct. 9th court date. people have told me to explain what happend to the judge, because it sounds like entrapment - the cop riding up on my tail, pushing me to go faster - which is a serious offense.
what do you think? did i deserve the tickets?
edit: and losing my lisence because i'm looking at 10 strikes and im under 18.
