If you had been going that fast, and a moose came out in front of you, She woudl be dead, he would be dead, and you woudl be dead... (he goes on to explain how much damage a moose could do to my car).
Officer: Ok, you need to slow down, have a nice day.
........ I honestly do not think I was going much past 70, if is was at all, I didn't really look, but I wasn't driving around looking for trouble that night, I was on the way home to eat.
We could have a discussion on radar detectors, police radar, etc. If you don't have a detector, don't know what you'll understand. Additionally, cops can pace your car and issue tickets that way also.
Bottom line .... How fast were you going? If you didn't get a ticket, why the heartburn?
When I was in high school, I took these two girls to this dance. On the way home, I was driving slowly and the girls said I needed to make this right turn. I barely made the turn and the cop that was behind me (till then, I didn't know he was there) and turned on his lights.
He came to my window and said that "I was weaving down the road" but after looking at the 2 nice ladies, he said, "But I can see why."
He checked my license and let me continue on without a ticket. Don't know if I got much more of a warning, except to pay better attention to the road.
