Just a thread to see what everyones 1st experience getting stopped by a cop was...

probably done before, but who cares.

Reason I'm posting, I'll go first. Long story but...

Just happened today...

First run in with the cops was on this residential road...I had just finished washing my car and wanted to 'dry' it off by pumping up the rpms and letting air do the rest. I usually do it down this road...today, bad luck.

I turn into the road, and gun it. 1st gear up to ~6k rpms and shift up, up to only about ~30mph and I see a cop car in a driveway of a guys house and a cop right there on the street next to the house, and I'm like oh SHIT, I immediately slam on brakes, downshift, and see the cop waving, telling me to pull over. I pull over and turn off the engine.

We talk, he asks for my license, I left it at my house!!! I only planned to be driving for a bit, and didn't know this'd happen. At this point, I felt I was really fucked, but good news my house was very close, right in that area. I asked the cop if I could go home and get it, and he said 'you better run, or we'll tow this car away'...at this point I'm sprinting my way home. I sprint back, total time it took was around ~5 minutes. I give him my license, he asks a few more questions,


'Ever been arrested? License on probation? Ever got a ticket? How old are you?'

No, No, No, 17.

'Never got a ticket, and you're 17?'

'No, Officer.'

'Well, there's a first time for everything right?'

At this point I really think I'm fucked, my insurance rates are high enough, a ticket will raise it by alot, plus my parents probably won't let me drive ever again.

I apologize and basically begging now, not a very proud moment..

He says:

'How strong are you kid? Let me see you flex...'

I'm like... 'uhh.'

'Do 50 pushups and we'll see.'

There was two cops there, one was undercover, one was in uniform. I get on all fours and quickly do them.

'Ok, you know what, this is your lucky day. Don't be like that guy' He points to the cop car, a guy was sitting in the back seat. 'Don't be walking the streets looking for drugs like that junkie, alright, now get out of here before I change my mind. I want to see you signal as you pull out, and be doin 10mph out of here.'

He hands me my keys, out of breath, I run to my car and get the fuck out of there. Get home, dry off the car, and glad its all over.

Btw, I don't even have a bimmer yet, I'm driving a Merc 190E 2.3L 5spd...reason why the cop stopped me was probably because of the high revs, and the really loud sound my car makes, seeing as there is a hole in both the cat and the muffler...



Ugh, I'm gonna be driving safe for awhile now, more so than before. I rarely hit those revs high, just on a few occasions, guess you can say i'm lucky and unlucky... and I need to get myself a radar detector, not that wouldve helped in that situation.

ghead

I was trespassing (on the roof) on a highschool at 3am. He had us on the ground and searched and stuff. However, as luck has it, I was somewhat dating this cops niece. So we all started talkin and hes like ah well i dont understand why you would come to a school when you dont have to but i guess id be doing the same stuff when i was a kid. And he never wrote us up for a felony.


He didnt know we broke into a class and put all the chairs and teachers desk up on the roof.

haha, nice

we have these golf carts that roam around the school, with the damn rent a cops and 'advisors' that ride them.

We plan to break into the garage, jack a few, and build a platform to drive it up onto the roof.

heh

Been pulled over three times...
first time ever, I was dropping off a girl at her house and me and this other classmate left in my car. Her house was on a busy street and her driveway was small. Facing into the driveway, I had to make a right, but couldn't. I must not have been really thinking and thought that the only way to back out and to make that right was to pull into the opposing traffic and wait untill i could jump in. So i waited till there was no 'opposing traffic' and got out of the driveway, checked the mirrors and went into the right lane. All of a sudden a cop jumps behind me. He waits untill i'm in his jurisdiction, that prick, and pulls me over. He was chewing gum or tabacco or something (hard to understand him). He claimed that I cut of a tanker truck (wtf?) and almost hit him (wtf are you talking about????????). He asked if i was on drugs, because i couldn't understand him with his chewing going on, i said "what?" He then proceded to call me deaf and whatever else... was a while ago. Anyway, the fucker gave me a warning... Man I hate cops. Fucking pigs... sorry to any innocent pigs out there just doing thier job. But sometimes i just wanna pull over a cop for the stupid shit they do sometimes.

I got so many tickets when I was 17-20 that I have no idea how my first ticket went. I got 9 tickets in just under 3 years. I was clean, only 1 in the last 7 years till I got my bimmer in Jan.

my first was racing my friends prelude from a stop light when i had a civic. no one in sight. cop was behind a building with a laser. he pulled both of us over at the next light (i should have made a right on red and hauled ass) and then gave us both reckless driving tickets. he said he clocked me at 71 in a 45 up a hill and gaining on the prelude before his radar lost track. i ended up going about 85 up the hill (thank god he lost it) plus this cop was racist against white people (trust me I know) suspended liscense for 6mo, 400 dollar fine, and community service. sucks

First time I got pulled over was with my permit when I was still 15 years old. My "licensed" driver was a 16 year old buddy at the time. We got pulled over becaus his POS 1988 Grand Am had temporary plates in the back window that could not be seen because of the tint. I got away from that one without a ticket.

Funniest story I have though is when I was about 17 years old I got pulled over for not having my head lights on. I had just finished filling up my gas tank and was pulling out of the station and had not turned the lights on because I was putting in a big wad of Red Man tobacco. Well the cop turns around and pulls me over and I somehow accidentally swalled the chew. He asks me for my license and registration and then asks me why I look sick and asks me if I had been drinking. I tell him "no, I just swallowed my chew when your lights when on" He started laughing at me and told me to get out of here and go puke. Sure enough, I drove around the corner and started puking outside of my truck. He drove past me and shined his lights on and I knew he was laughing inside while I was standing there puking.

I got pulled over by a cop for doing 25 in a 30. He pulled me over because the thought I was driving "steadily"...
I did point out I was driving past a GATSO (speed scamera).

He basically wanted to know if i'd stolen the car I think. Checked ignition barrel anyway.
Its that moment when his lights go on and you think "OMG what have i done? lights are ok, brakelights work, wasnt speeding, numberplate's clean..."

Oh, and nothing came of it (Mine! all mine!)

So many I dont remember

ok maybe I do. I was driving my dad's suburban, coming down a hill in a 45, I was doing some 55 or so. He nails me and takes me into the front seat of his crusier while he writes the ticket. I'm sittin there just checkin out all his equip and being all nirvious cause my dad'd own me when I got home. He says my registration is expired, it clearly isn't since it's got all the stickers and crap but whatever. My dad handled it.
Every ticket after that was a "liscence and registration. thank you I'll be back in 5 minutes............ Ok sir, your court date is X and you were going X in an X zone, there's a $125 court cost and you must show up in court. Slow down and have a safe day."

Cops always try to scare you your first time, they check your liscence, see if you've ever done anything before, and if your still a teen and it's your first one, many times they'll make you jump through hoops and crap... Just to scare you to prevent you from doing anything bad the next time.

My buddy's first ticket, speeding maybe 7-8 miles over the limit, the cop made him do a full on sobriety test and I think he searched his car as well.. thank god he hadn't started smoking weed by then lol.

I hate traffic cops... Bleh.

Got chased by a cop through my home village after I overtook him at 65 in a 30. I then just floored it and hoped with the distance I'd got between us he'd not catch up, anyway I made it home and slung her on the driveway, got out and started to head toward the front door when this cop car pulled up on the drive and just flashed his blues. Turns out over here they need to clock your speed for a quater of a mile or something before they can book you and as we were going round a few bends and there was a fair distance between us he couldnt get a fix for that long.He did say though that his speedo had been calibrated the day before so on the word of a police officer he could make a fuss if he wanted. Didn't though, he just gave me a warning and the old "take it steady in future" routine. Anyway that was about 11yrs ago now. Sorry that's not very exciting but it was my first run in with the law!
