Smile Cops on 280....

Hahaaaa... dumb copper...

I was going North on 280 the other day- A cop was trying to pace me after entering from Farm Hill Blvd...

Piggy piggy lost some revenue......the Mercedes right in front of me got away because the cop was fixated on me. He must have like my gold wheels or something =).

So, what was the Mercedez doing? You kind of totally left that part out...

He probably wasn't pacing you, rather checking your plate to see if it was on his "Hot Sheet". It's a daily updated list of all known stolen vehicles. He probably pulled up on you, checked your plate and then just kept driving,...probably just looked like he was "trying" to pace you.

werd. bump for the best freeway in the country. is it just me or would another way to prevent deer from crossing the freeway be to build chain-link style fences on both sides of the freeway?

That would be expensive, damage the nice view, and prevent idiots from going off the road and down the hill.
Can't have that.

actually, the type of fence i'm speaking of wouldn't prevent idiots from driving off the road.

as i said, a CHAIN LINK fence ie one that you can see through, but that deer can't get over. know what i mean?

and they REALLY need to install a freaking center median that you can't barrel through, head on accidents on freeways=not good.

I was probably going about 85 or so...... It seems to me that cops generally will ignore you on this stretch of road until you get over 75mph.

The officer never got behind me... basically he got onto the freeway at probably 90+ and slowed to pace me..... I hit the brakes when I saw him at the last minute. The funny thing was that there was a Mercedes SUV right in front of me that never saw him and kept going at ~85mph or so.

He was just discriminating against my car! =)

If a cop is coming up on you, the Last thing you want to do is slam on your brakes.

Nothing says "I was speeding" to a cop like brake lights.

yeah, but unless he either gunned you or has paced you properly, there ain't a damn thing he can do about it other than waste some of your time by making you copy a letter off of a website, or actually show up in court and make him look like an ass in person.

I swear cops like the power trip to be able to make people slow down ... i think ur better off hitting the brakes than continuing to mash @ 85mph. Maybe slaming on the brakes is too much ...

in my experience, it's pointless to think about it too much. if you see a cop, slow down to the flow of traffic or around 5 to 10 mph over the speed limit. unless your car is rice or flashy, you will not have any problems. perhaps even making eye contact and giving a wave every now and then.

well duh....

you should hear some of the stories i get to hear...

once, when this family member of mine, was just a explorer/one step before being an actual cop-thing, he had to drive a black and white to another city, he had the greatest time getting people to slow down and stuff...

I had long hair for a couple of years. I got pulled over twice for speeding and 8 times for absolutely no reason other than the cops wanted to harass me. One of the times I was speeding the bastard wrote me up for doing 63 in a 55 on 101.
