Rev the hell out of your drag pipes as the LEO is getting out of his cruiser, just to make sure he knows you are not to be taken lightly.

The driver pays for the towing and impound fees which can work out to thousands of dollars. The driver and passengers are left on the side of the road to fend for themselves. No matter where they are or what the weather is doing. I personally know of an elderly couple who were nabbed doing 120 km/hr in an 80 on their way to the hospital for stitches after grammaw took a fall. They ended up walking and waiting for a ride. if your cellphone is not working or you are in a dead area, you wait for the tow driver cause Dudley Do-right is not making that call for you. And don't try to use your children or pregnancy save you, 'cause it ain't happening. True story, we are well and truly fucked these days.
Granny should have "passed out" so the cop would have to call EMS. Hospital problem solved.

Grampaw should not have stopped. Would have been epic.

On a bike do you take your helmet off? Keys out? What's your routine?
To break the ice on initial contact try this, it always works for me:
"You only stopped me because I'm black" It takes a couple seconds for the slack jaw mouth breathing to stop, then they usually start laughing. At this point I badge them, and I'm on my way.

I'm not sure I understand what is funny about this. Are you black?

I know few who are intimidated to that extent. Hell, most here treat cops like the enemy it seems by the responses.

Do people in Europe treat the cops like crap?

Most of them want you to be intimidated and they make themselves the enemy by treating people unfairly . If I actually did something I can understand maybe , but everybody isn't guilty of something and they're no better than anybody else. I don't go for that do as I say , not as I do bullshit and a badge doesn't make them an instant hero. I know a few cops , but most of them I probably wouldn't piss on if they were on fire.

No, sounds like he's a pi... cop. For the most part, they tend to think they are above the law in the USA.

IMHO, other than a bit of added respect (in the interest of avoiding a ticket), that is how most Americans treat traffic cops as well, some on this forum excepted.

Things seem to be magnified/overstated on this forum.

I was carving corners doing about 85 in a 55 twisty section of highway in Washington State a couple years ago, rounded a corner, and saw a LEO headed in the other direction. I watched my mirrors, and saw him pull a U-turn. I knew he had me.

I saw a pullout before he even had a chance to get behind me, and pulled over, took off my helmet, and just sat on my bike and waited. He whizzed by me, then slammed on the brakes and pulled into the pullout next to me.

He said, "Normally, people wait until I'm behind them to pull over."
I said, "I saw you turn around. I knew you had me."
He asked, "Why were you going so fast?"
I looked down at my Concours14, I looked back at the road, and then looked back at him and smiled.

We BS'ed for a while. I still got a ticket, but he wrote it up for doing 74 in a 55, so my fine was way less.

After we were done, I followed him to his car, and said "I just wanted you to know. Totally worth it!"
