    I am going 73 in a 55 and get nailed with radar by AZ DPS. I pass by the officer and he hops in his car and floors it. As soon as I see this, I start looking for a safe place to pull over, not much shoulder to work with on this stretch of I-10.

    I pull over and wait with the truck off and both on hands on the steering wheel. Of course, my passenger side window is broke, so it won't roll down. The officer walks up to the window and taps on it. I motion that it won't roll down, so he opens the door "slowly" ( officer safety, I would have too ).

    This is the conversation:

    Officer = O
    Me = me

    O - Good morning, do you have any weapons in the vehicle?
    Me - Yes sir
    O - Without reaching for it, where is it at?
    Me - Behind me on the floor near the center console.
    O - License, registration, insurance please.
    Me - Ok (I hand him all that and my CCW)
    O - I pulled you over for your speed. You were going 73 in a 55.
    Me - I know.
    O - Do you still live at ***** lane?
    Me - Yes sir
    0 - If I lean over the console will I be able to see your weapon?
    Me - Yes, if not you can open the back door.
    O - Is the weapon holstered?
    Me - Yes sir
    O - (officer looks over center console and says) Yeah I can see it.
    O - (while looking at my Id and other paperwork, he gets on his radio, says his location to dispatch, pauses, then says "have a nice day"
    Me - Thank you Sir.

    Then he goes back to his car and speeds off.

    I am thankful for not getting a ticket, but I got caught speeding and was fully expecting a ticket for it.

    Just thought I would share.

    In other news, I went to 7-11, got a package of twinkies and chocolate milk for breakfast and paid for it. The clerk took my money, said "have a nice day" and I left.

    Now that's the breakfast of champions! :)

    I know, 3 minutes of your life I just took by me posting and you reading my uneventful run in with the law. I just thought I would share. I haven't been pulled over for anything in probably 10 years.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Danged cops always telling people what to do.

    I mean, what if you didn't want to have a nice day? Are you somehow under a moral obligation to abide by the words of the LEO? Pshaw.

    There's no damnation to it. I'm just remarking on the common, everyday mundane activities people post on the internet. I had a friend on facebook for instance who posted what he had for breakfast everyday at 0700 on the dot. It was never anything odd or spectacular...bacon and eggs with toast, orange juice and french toast, pancakes w/ butter...etc. I think there's a level of detail about your life that the whole world really doesn't need to know. Do you have any idea how boring it would be on this site if every cop posted about each traffic stop he made? Or how about every 5mph bumper tap accident he responded to? Or every time he got to sit and block traffic around downed power lines for 3 hours? It would get old really fast and that's kinda how I'm feeling with these "I was stopped by the police and nothing happened" threads. I'm glad you realized your mistake in speeding and the officer dealt with you professionally and courteously. Bonus points for the warning, too.


    Edit to add...
    It strikes me as odd that he waited until he was at your door and already making contact before calling it in. I know NV DPS Troops always answer with their location when being called by their dispatcher to respond to a call. It sounds like he was being dispatched to a call and decided that was more important than writing you a ticket. Either way, I'd take the break and run with it. :)

    Not to worry... the officer already told her after following her
    home.

    I have nothing to add other than I got a 90 out of 100 on my last performance evaluation. I need to try harder.

    No harm. My life is pretty boring when that is the highlight of my day/week/month or whatever. I do think he got another call, cause he wasn't really focused on me. AND no, he did not have a hat on....Oakley's - I think...:rofl:

    I made 20 stops today, and wrote 12 tickets. Every stop included a "take care" and "drive carefully". One day, people will listen to me. :)
