Hey guys, last night i went for a drive.
I was driving through a quaint little village with a 30 limit and i was doing 30 ALL the way through, this taxi was stuck on my arse but still stuck to the speed limit as i KNEW there was a 60 limit coming up, i dropped into 2nd and thought i'd teach him a lesson........
The 60 limit sign came up and i floored it - went from 30 - 55 and then lifted off as i was VERY tired and my reactions weren't quite what they should have been.
I look in my mirror and am content to see the taxi miles back - then all of a sudden the "taxi" has blue flashing lights.......bugger thinks me, but then checked speedo again and am BELOW speed limit.
So i pull over and the transcript as follows:
Policeman 1 "Do you know what speed you were going?"
Me "Yeah about 55....."
Policeman 1 "That's right...... Do you know what the speed limit is here?"
Me " Yes sir, its 60 - National Speed limit"
Policeman 1 " Do you know why i've pulled you over?"
Me "Not really to be honest"
At this point Policeman 2 gets out the car, comes over to the passenger side.
Policeman 2 "In a hurry are we?"
Me "Not really sir"
Policeman 2 "Could have fooled me"
Me "Sorry Sir"
Policeman 2 "you don't look sorry, how about i issue a traffic offense ticket, then you'll be sorry!!"
Policeman 2 then walks around the car, and says to me, "live in Ninfield do we?"
Me "Yeah that's right"
Policeman 2 "where are you going?"
Me "Fish and chips.....in Rye......the Kettle 'o' Fish
Policeman 2 "Rich parents have we?" (referring to the car)
Me "Not really no, they helped me with the car but i put a lot back in like making a secure website and two others for his business"
Policeman 2 "Thats good then"
Policeman 2 now speaking to Policeman 1 "tear up the prodducer"
Policeman 1 "Are you sure?"
Policeman 2 "Yeah he seems a nice enough bloke and doesn't look daft enough to drive with no insurance"
Policeman 2 "on your way then"
Me "Cheers guys i appreciate it"
Policeman 1 "Enjoy your chips mate"
And then i was off....... was it all really worth it?
