    cop wannabe's have seen several reports of people doing this and they try to pull overtops though usually not in uniform.

    Whoops.

    I've seen it done mostly by teens as pranks but limited to just making cars pull to right.

    I worked a call where three guys were targeting upscale cars occupied by women to rob. The observant driver with two female passengers sensed the danger as the three guys approached her stopped car. Two of the guys opened fire as she drove off through the front yard of house. We caught them near the GGB.

    My thoughts exactly. I could see the desire to drive fast and have everyone get out of your way. I could see some sick nefarious purpose like abducting a woman. But pulling someone over just to pull them over seems a little pointless.

    I always thought my father should buy a used Ford Police Interceptor. It might make his commute faster from CT to NYC if he got in the left hand lane and tailgated everyone out of his way.

    That's a "You'll never be a cop son!" Oh really? "Hold my beer!" type of moment.

    I used to hear of it happening in Florida so people could get through traffic with fake light bars. Ridiculous.

    If anything this reinforces the idea that only marked cars should be used to initiate traffic stops.

    Ehhhh... I bought a used police bike and it's about 50/50 in my experience. Half the people will get out of my way, but the other half will slow down to 5mph under, thus slowing us all down.
