Especially those that fly around clocking unknowing drivers to send the information to the police waiting at the exits of the highway..
I pull off the highway, wait at the light and turn right and watch as a cop car pulls out behind me and puts his lights on. I (very confused as I have done nothing wrong in front of this cop) pull over into a Wendy’s parking lot. I frantically start calling Christie, and then Michelle, trying to get a hold of one of them. It is 12pm and I am supposed to be 10 minutes from where I am, picking Brianna up at Northwest Bible from VBS. I leave a message for Michelle, telling her I was pulled over and can she please get Brianna. The police officer, comes up to the car, and apologizes for interrupting my phone call. I tell him I’m sorry for being on the phone, but that I am desperately trying to get ahold of a friend to pick up my daughter from VBS since I will be so late in getting there. He says it’s ok. Tells me I was going 84 in a 65 and that I was clocked by air and then asks me for my driver’s license and proof of insurance. I give him my license and he walks away, I tear open the glove compartment looking for the proof of insurance and all I can find is one that expired 9/06. I call Brian, freaking out over the phone, my hands are shaking because I have NEVER gotten a speeding ticket before, or been pulled over! He tells me that he just put one in not that long ago, I can’t find it. I ask him to call Northwest Bible to tell them that I will be late. The cop approaches the car again, apologizes for interrupting my second phone call. I tell him I’m sorry, I was asking my husband to call the church. He assures me it’s ok, goes over my ticket, tells me I can pay it or go to court on July 11th. I inform him that I will just be paying it as I will be in Hawaii that day. He apologizes for taking up my time and let’s me go on my way.
I owe $105…
Stupid OSU plane #09!
Is it wrong of me to only be sorry that I was caught?
I will say that I am happy that he couldn’t have been more polite. I have heard stories about how mean some cops can be and he was apologizing to me! Though I really didn’t need to be apologized too LOL. I was the one who was getting the ticket for not following the law..
