While driving, a police car passed me by, turned around and followed me. I slowed down. 

It gave a warning for me to stop. I did. 

I was running a lot of excuses in my mind but decided to put it all aside. I prayed instead - Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.

A police women came. "Hi!"

I said, "Hello!"

"Ok", she said, "I pulled you over, because you were running at 60mph in a 45 lane".

I said "I'm sorry".

She said "Now do you have driver's license, registration and insurance?"

I said, "Yes".

There was a pause (Oh, I guess, this was the time when I should have given her everything already), she repeated, "So, you do have your driver's license, registration and insurance?"

I said, "Yes", and took out my driver's license. 

She took it, and said, "so you've never been stopped before?"

I said, "No, so it was 60mph really?"

She said "Yes".

I proceeded to get the pile of papers to look for the car's registration and insurance.

I said, "I'm sorry, but I have to look for it", and continued searching for the registration.

She said, "Ok, just hang on for a minute ok?"

I said, "Yes" as I flipped through the papers.

I can't find it!!! But continued with my search.

She came back, "Here's your driver's license"

I took it, puzzled. "So, you won't give me ticket?"

She said, "No, no ticket. Next time, just run at 45mph ok?"

I said, "Yes!, thank you so much!" "Have a safe day!" 

I said, "Thank you, you too!"

1. When a police car pulled you over, PRAY!
2. Follow my husband! He had fun saying "I told you so!!!" too many times when I told him what just happened!
3. I think it also helped that there was a delay in finding the registration and insurance card!
4. It was 12 noon and I guess, the timing, also helped too!
5. Maybe the police woman took pity on me, since I can barely speak (I've got cough and colds!)

Bottom Line!
Follow the road signs!!! 
or I may not get lucky next time!

But then, it is worthy to know that there are attorneys dedicated in defending persons charged with reckless driving, DUI, speeding tickets, hit and run, eluding, and other traffic crimes and violations. Check it out here 

They have the focus and experience in reckless driving law (firm in Richmond Virginia)  and it enabled them to build a high success rate of dismissed or reduced charges for their clients.

Nice huh?


P.S. Just learned that it could have cost $180.00 for the ticket! whoa! Thank God for no ticket!
