Interesting. When I was young and foolish, now I'm old and foolish, I was pulled
over by an NYC patrol car for blocking an intersection. I gave the cop the
finger, I didn't realize it was a cop at that time, when he started blaring his
horn at me. Needless to say he pulled me right over, and because I was young and
foolish, I didn't pull all the way over, in fact his car was sticking out into
the traffic lane by about 3 feet, and I only rolled the window down a couple of
inches initially, and I was pretty surly. After all this I was given a warning
and told to behave my self.
Last year I did a rolling stop and right turn at a light and got pulled over
immediately. This time I did all the right things as per the above list and got
a $70 ticket and 2 points.
Hmm! Maybe I should have some coffee and doughnuts ready next time.
Still fuming over that ticket.
