Have you ever noticed when you’re driving down the interstate or a highway that when you come upon a police officer who has pulled someone over that everyone slows down?
I have noticed this many times before. I noticed it yesterday, too. But then I started thinking; wouldn’t the best time to be speeding be when the cop is otherwise preoccupied?
Seriously, people. If a cop is out of his car giving someone else a ticket or in his car writing a ticket he’s not paying attention to his radar gun. Furthermore, even if he does happen to notice you’re speeding he (or she) is not just going to let the person he (or she) pulled over go just because you ignorantly sped by.
If you’ve ever seen Die Hard 3 you know what I’m talking about. The criminals wanted to steal all of the gold from the federal reserve bank. So what did they do? They told the police there was a bomb in one of the schools sending every officer available to search for the bomb while they cleaned out the gold.
Same concept applies here. If a cop has already pulled someone over he or she will not be looking for another speeder whilst writing a ticket.
So quit slowing down, assholes!
