I got pulled over once for something someone else had done (although I had also done something dumb)! The road I used to take home was two very long lanes, the left turning left down a steep hill, and the right going straight or turning right. There was always a huge backup at the left turn light, but the arrow to turn left was also long, so it really wasn’t that bad. So one day, which had been a really carpy day for me at work. I’m waiting to make my left turn, and I was about 3 cars back, when the light turned yellow. Now I KNOW I should have stopped but I didn’t as I just wanted to get home.
Well, all of a sudden I see flashing lights behind me so I pulled over, and thought, oh carp, just what I need. So the cop comes over and says “did you make that turn?” Thinking he meant basically turning on a red light, I very slowly said yeees. He then said “I couldn’t believe what I saw, a car coming up in the right lane, and then turning left”
I then realized he must have mistaken me with another car, and I said oh, no no no, I didn’t do that, I thought you pulled me over for turning on a red. He then asked me if I had SEEN who did it. Um no, I did not. I will say that while I had been waiting in line for the light to change and turn, a small, white sports car zoomed up in the right lane. Which could have been the one, however, since I drove a gray, four door sedan, I don’t know how the cop mistook me for the car that possibly made the very illegal turn!
