I was pulled over yesterday by the Police, and for something I wasn't sure was an offence....They pulled me for driving below
the speed limit, lol. Here's what happened. I had just left my sister's house and was driving down her road. I drove past a Police car which had just entered the road. I mentally recorded this in my head, lol. Anyway I carried on driving, albeit extra cautiously because I knew a Police car was lurking about in the area (My speedo was registering as on
the speed limit for the duration). I noticed headlights behind me at a set of traffic lights, this made me drive even more cautiously.
So eventually they pull me over (I was expecting this by now) and the Police Officer comes over to the car and tells me that they pulled me over because "Remarkably you were driving below the speed limit". I was pleased that when her collegue was checking the car, he didn't decide that my nearside rear tyre was illegal (it's very close, and if it was a Traffic unit they'd probably have torn the car apeart!). I was also a bit cross at the same time because you seem to be damned if you do, yet damned if you don't where the police are concerned. I mean, they'd no doubt have pulled me over if I was doing 5mph over the speed limit too. I could see where they were coming from, as not many people drive carefully these days, and by no doubt would if they knew they were being watched. I didn't tell the officer that I knew they were behind me, as I didn't want them to think I was hiding anything, lol. Oh well, at least I wasn't doing anything illegal.......not that I ever do. Just wanted to have a rant, albeit a slight one.
