Let me add for all the mothers who immediatley may feel offended or personally attacked, this is for most not ALL police officers.
That being said, i dislike no strongly dislike the police officers in my state. They are rude, judgemental, and do not help they way they should. today on my way to work, there was someone who riding behind me, (im on the highway the speed limit is 55) i am doing 60 miles. the car behind speed up really fast and kind of swerves alittle as if to tell me to speed up, there is traffic on the road so it wasnt like i was clear to get over on my right, to allow the person to pass. Not that i would anyway because im already doing over the speed limit. then the cop lights go off, im like really im getting pulled over? i speed up to get past the car on my right and pull to the right lane, the cops speeds past cuts off his lights and as im driving i see him do the same thing again to another car.
thats so rude first off i have a baby on board sign on the back of my window , and my dd in the car why is this cop riding my ass like this. second off, im already doing 5 miles over the speed limit why do polic officers feel it to be ok for civillians to speed only when they are in a hurry? because if that cop was clocking or timing people i wouldve been pulled over and summoned a ticket right?
now i know most of you will say maybe he got a call, and had to hurry there... NO ! if he had an emergency the law is the officer, ambulance etc are suppose to ride with their lights and sirens on to warn the other drivers to get over.. he was just being a ass. and took advantage of the fact that he is a officer.. smh vent over
this is just ONE incident i have had with cops.. sorry but i never want to say i hate anyone but i STRONGLY dislike police officers.
eta: this copied straight from my states driving and traffic laws.
Chapter 10, Section 8: Overtaking and Passing
Three-Laned Highways - A roadway that has traffic traveling in opposite directions may have three lanes. The center lane, unless marked otherwise, may be used only to overtake and pass another vehicle, and only when it is safe to do so. If it is earmarked for one direction of travel, the far left lane should be used for faster traffic or as a passing lane.
- Passing is legal whenever there is a broken line on your side of the road or when there is a single white broken line in the middle of a two-lane road.
- Use a passing lane only when the maneuver is perceived as safe and prudent and can be completed without use of excessive speed. You must complete the pass within a reasonable amount of time, and you cannot exceed the speed limit
soooo, to all you KNOW IT ALLS, 1. my state does NOT have the law where the left lane is used only for passing , that only applys if its three or more lanes, (i was on a two lane highway) and not only is it passing for three or more lanes but its also used for those who drive faster.
2nd. read number two please.. dont worry ill wait..
ok so THAT COP IS AN ASSHOLE AND HE HAD ME BREAK THE LAW. BY GOING 15 MILES OVER THE SPEED LIMIT TO GET INFRONT OF THE OTHER CAR IN MY RIGHT LANE. OH but let me guess its ok to break the law if the officer tells you too? yeah HI. all of you ladies calling my a dumbass can do one better kiss my ass :)
