I got my early Xmas present... NO Ticket. Thank You Officer!

I was coming home from picking up take out Xmas eve afternoon with my son when I met a very cool Police Officer.

Local traffic patterns have really changed in my area since Sept 11th due to the proximity of Ft. Meade and the National Security Agency. I was merging onto Rt 32 East in front of Ft. Meade's main gate where the new merge lane ends after about 4 car lengths. Since the light had just turned and oncoming traffic was really heavy I punched it and moved out smartly to get ahead of and avoid all the traffic.

I hadn't noticed an umarked cruiser waiting at the light but he sure noticed me and it wasn't long before I saw him in my rear view mirror with lights flashing. :eek: By that time I had slowed down considerably but was still about 15 mph over the posted speed.

I pulled off t othe side of the road and got my papers and a pen ready to sign my "timing slip". But the officer came up and told me I didn't need any of that. He just asked me to pay more attention and make sure if I was going "stretch out my cars legs, not to do it in front of an officer so as not to embarrass us both."

Very cool guy! :)

BLUE LIGHTS!!??

In Kalifornia, they all use RED Lights to pull you over.

Never saw any Blue Lights before. I wonder how many states use Blue!?

Also, any other colors used any place else??

Some cops are regular guys and some are not. Looks like you found a good one, or shall I say, he FOUND YOU! Glad it ended on a happy note. :p Bill :cheers:
