Wow, where do I start?
Let's start with a spring break road trip*cough* years ago. I was on spring break from college and some friends of mine (exchange students) had chipped in together to buy an old car, fodly called the Land Whale. I was the DD because they found after some experimentation that a guy from Norway,a guy from Denmark, and a guy from Scotland cannot drive a Land Whale without hitting parked cars on the street. So, spring break, I was the DD. All is well until we reach Chicago. I get pulled over once and stay on the side of the road 15 minutes answering weird questions while the other three remain mum. The officer finally asks them questions and as soon as he hears the accents he lets us go. We go through this 3 more times while in Chicago. Come to find out we fit the profile of a hooker and her johns, so that's why we were stopped. Does this count as DWB (driving while black?)
Pulled over legitimately for speeding. Speeding a lot. Speeding as going 120+ in a 60 (please, yes I know it was wrong. I don't do that anymore). Cop was spitting fire mad. This is go to jail type speeding. The only reason I didn't go is that all officers were called to respond to something more important than me and he had to leave. I stopped speeding (like this) after this encounetr.
Stopped for veering in traffic. After the officer saw the small deer embedded in the grill he heped me pull it out and let me go.
A few years ago DH and I lived near some sort of police training facility. They took the new cops out to the road leading from the forest to the main road and taught them how to do traffic stops. Pulled over weekly for almost 3 years. Never actually got a ticket.
I have been pulled over in Scotland, Tennessee, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Illionois, Michigan, Kentucky, Florida, Alabama, DC, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Texas, Missouri,and Virginia. Out of all of these, most were routine traffic stops that resulted in nothing, one was a ticket for going 65 in a 55 (crossing over a state line and didn't slow in time), 4 resulted in my car being searched (nothing found), one passenger being arrested (a cousin that I was taking home who had a child support warrant ), and one citation for a broken tail light and no proof of insurance (both dropped after I went to court with proof of insurance and report of the fixed tail light).
All of the above happened during the three year period that I drove the Land Whale. I sold it and bought the first Subaru wagon and have only been stopped for the above mentioned police training and for going 55 in a 40 (legit, paid the ticket).
