RE: Cops, Valentine One (no Quattro content)

Just curious, why did you both pull over?

I've had this happen and I will not pull over unless the cop makes a
concerted effort to get ME. I will always make it far easier for the cop
to pull the other guy over. (this WORKS!) If he really wants ME he is 
not going to be able to get the other guy. It's me or him but not both. 

Don't wimp out!


Hmmmmm...Here's one that I'm in the process of trying to beat.  I got
nailed with lidar in CT doing 76 in a 55.  There was one other car on the
road (in front of me), and he pulled both of us over.  He gave us a huge
break -- failure to obey a posted sign, $60 no points.  Unfortunately
insurance doesn't care about the points, its the violation that they'll
nail me for and I'll be looking at a 10-20% increase for 3-5 years.

Here's the catch...on the ticket, he wrote down the state where the vehicle
was registered as PA, not VA.  I've never driven a car with PA
registration.  Think I've got a chance, or should I just suck it up and pay
the fine?
