Yeah, I agree. Here in the UK I've been caught a few times over the limit
but not doing anything stupid and they've let me go. In a Range Rover at
85 on the M6 a cop just breezed past; many times on dual carriage ways at
90 when it's been quiet, the cop hiding behind the bush has let me pass.
A friend in one of the first Ford Cosworths (I don't think they went to
America, but they were very fast Ford mid-size hatchbacks - turbo 16v 2
litre, 200hp) was pulled at 104 on the M6, and the cop let him off with a
warning to "keep it below the ton, sir". My father reckons a police motor
bike sneaked up on him at 120 in his quattro a long time ago, but I think
he was bull shitting - reckons the guy just went by
