    Like the author of the story, my BS meter is going off too, but it's because although this makes for a great story I seriously doubt it's authenticity. If the events are factual as opposed to a humorous bit of fiction then my money says the officer knew the fella was lying. He only went along with it to watch him squirm and take satisfaction in seeing how it would play out.

    I'm pretty sure it's just a funny story and it's not true. Cops can't just use their sirens whenever they want and I'm sure they are not allowed to escort civilians. Can you imagine the lawsuits if they got in an accident.

    Totally. A policeman would never in a million years abuse their powers. :rolleyes:

    I do agree with you though, there's no way that's a true story. Funny, but not true.


    A true story....
    A friend of mine got pulled over because the tint on the rear window of his pickup truck was too dark. It was practically opaque.

    The policeman asked: "Are you aware that it is illegal in this state to have a tint that dark?"
    My friend (who for some reason was in a pissy mood, and is a well-known smart ass) asked him back: "Are you aware if it is illegal to tell a cop to go f*** himself in this state?"
    Cop: "Did you just tell me to go f*** myself?!?"
    Friend:"No of course not. I just asked you if it is illegal to tell you to go f*** yourself."

    Needless to say, he got the ticket.

    I thought you were going to say that your friend was dark skinned and thought the offices was being racist.

    ... Does that make me racist? I'm not, I swear.

    Racist!!!!!!

    My MIL got out of a ticket by telling the officer she really had to go to the bathroom. It helps that she's a little old asian lady with broken english.

    Very funny! Don't think it's factual, but a good story anyway.

    What's funnier is the cop probably went back and told his buddies about the guy who tried to weasel his way out of the ticket and ended up engaged!

    Seriously...

    What I do is just sit there. Nothing more.

    When the cop comes up, he/she asks for my license. That's what they always do first.

    I then say, "Let me get it out, it's in my wallet."

    I never have the license out waiting for the cop to arrive. It might not help me any, and I don't have a large statistical base for a study. But, if the cop thinks I've never been stopped before, that can't be bad.

    The old ones are the best:

    Police officer pulls someone over for driving well over the speed limit :
    Police: I've been waiting for you all day.
    Driver: Sorry officer, I got here as quick as I could!

    ;)

    They can especially if they pull over a couple rushing to the hospital for child birth.

    I was coming home from a female friend's house late one night. We had just had a discussion about whether our relationship should go beyond friendship or not (one of us wanted, one of us didn't). I was mulling things over and deep in thought, the only car on the road, and slowly driving faster and faster without realizing it.

    The (female) cop who pulled me over said she first clocked me a number of blocks back and had to race to catch up with me, and didn't I notice how fast I was going?

    I explained my situation.

    She let me off the hook.

    It's not a funny story per se, but if you've been there, you understand.

    If you're stopped the smart thing to do is to just sit with your hands on the steering wheel. If the officer sees you rooting around in the car you can make the officer nervous and you may find yourself looking at the barrel of a Glock.
