I'm home for the weekend to visit family and my car. I decided yesterday to go buy something random as an excuse to drive. Well I'm on the freeway, and I decide to gun it. I pull right in front of porsche and I pull away. I look in my rear view to see if the porsche is gonna go at it with me, but i notice a highway patrol car in the lane that i had just left!!!! He watched me do everything. He calmly catches up to me and pulls me over.

I remember before he came up to the window, I was like "please no ticket." And tada, he didn't give me one. Since I had no tickets, I think that saved my *ss. He said "I can understand gunning it at 3am since you gotta sporty car here, but you gotta slow it down during the day."

That was it! I swear I've been lucky twice already. Last time was going 120.

Anyone else run into this kinda luck?

prelude2005: The CHP that pulled me over for that seems to be into my car. He said he has a Ford Focus and was wondering what I think he should do to his car. Then he proceeded to ask me about my car (I didn't tell all.. wasn't sure if it was a trick into a fix-it.)

schwett: San Jose on Hwy 17. The 120 catch was on 680 in Milpitas. Both were in the afternoon.

935dragger: This cop was actually on route to a call. So I think that's why he let me off.

I maxed out the speedo at 235km/h (146mph). It took a long stretch of road to squeeze the last 10km/h or so out of it, and I think that if I folded in the mirrors and took off the spoiler, I could hit 240km/h (unless there's an electronic limiter).

No ticket.

The luckiest I have been was 70+ in a 35 with expired plates, expired license, and expired tabs, and expired insurance. He just told me to slow down and have a nice day.

I've also been on the short end of the stick a couple times as well. Tickets for 64 in a 60 (he said I was racing), and 47 in a fifty (she said I was driving wrecklessly, although cars were passing me by).

Good thing you got off.

Nice man, isn't great when you get lucky? Ahhh, good feeling...
Anyway, i got real lucky once too. Driving home from work at 9 p.m. doing 74/55mph with no lights on, expired insurance, and a junior liscense! That's right, i was 16
When they pulled me over, they both got out of the car and surrounded me because they thought i was a wasted driver. But no, it was a tired, beginner 16 year old driver instead! They let me go mostly because i was so young and scared sh!tless, heh.
