- Caught speeding
“I was trying to increase the distance between you and me as you were quite close”
Worked for me once (was true though). Suspected it was a copper but was dark & couldn’t see him – followed me out of a service station and sat behind me. Tried 70, then low 60s and he just sat there so I gave it the beans and he pulled me over
Or else how about “you try driving slow when you’re coked off your tits”Posted 4 years agoKevaMember
just be honest and tell them, that’s what I’ve done and managed to get away with it… Do you realise how fast you were going? erm.. yeah, probably about 115mph. Yes, well I’ve just clocked you at 112mph… here’s a £60.00 ticket, be careful and remember the distance it takes to stop at that kind of speed 😯Posted 4 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
See that’s reverse logic. What you shoud do if someone is too close is to decrease your speed until the gap becomes acceptable for the speed you are travelling……

One of the guys I worked with got pulled for doing 92 on the motorway yesterday (he is a serial speeder, no one will get in the car with him from here).
The cop told him that if he’d just been a few miles an hour slower then he would have fallen within the cop’s discretion and he wouldn’t have booked him since it was a perfect day with no traffic on the road.
Not sure how true that is, but the officer was apparently very apologetic.
Getting done for speeding on a quiet motorway is bonkers.Posted 4 years agodeadlydarcyMember
Got pulled myself years ago – let the needle pop over 80 a touch in front of a cop car. Did the “No excuses from me officer”, took the lecture (delivered with a great deal of humour to be fair) and was sent on my way with a gentle ticking off.
Got stopped a few months later on the way back to Dallas by Texas State Troopers – a whole lot different experience; scared the bejeesus out of me – they polis things differently over there.Posted 4 years ago
“Not sure how true that is, but the officer was apparently very apologetic.”
and thats what wrong with this country.
Getting CAUGHT speeding on a quiet motorway is bonkers…. if your not paying enough attention to the road notice the VERY OBVIOUS old bill then you certainly should not be speeding.Posted 4 years agobrantSubscriber
My speedo flicked up to a touch more than the speed limit on the M1 on the way home last night which got me wondering…
If stopped and clearly bang to rights what is generally the best form of discussion.
1. I didn’t notice? Surely that’s got you bang on for due care and attention.
2. Yeah sorry, I wanted to get home and go for a bike ride.
Or another option?Posted 4 years ago

I think it was an unmarked car that pulled him over. I’ve got a habit of scanning every plate behind me for “SF” though!Posted 4 years agothegreatapeMember
‘Hello Sir. Do you know why I’ve stopped you?’
‘To let me know that you’ve caught the bastards who broke into my house and nicked my telly?’
Otherwise, if you were going a bit quick, just acknowledge it – no need to grovel – that’s your best chance of avoiding a ticket.Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
You could do what my friend tried a couple of weeks back when he got pulled.
He’s a mechanic and still had his overalls on.
Plod asked why he was speeding. He comes out with “Oh! Sorry Officer this is a customers car and I’m trying to diagnose a misfire.”Posted 4 years ago
Plod sends him on his way but asks him to be sensible and keep it under “about 85” 😀glupton1976Member

Not sure which excuse to use for best results but, if you get “done” when asked your date of birth, give the date it is that day with an appropriate year of course.
You might get let off as its your birthday!
That didn’t work for me on Sunday 2 June, which was in fact my birthday! 😡Posted 4 years ago
