Got pulled by the police for the first time tonight
Coming to an island, I slow down, and look to my right, like normal driving entails, anyway, nothing to the right of me, so i begin to pull away, and was doing about 20mph, where on the left side of me, a taxi driver pulls out, then stops over the white line. (he shouldnt have gone), anyway, the police were behind him..
So i carry on going right like I intended, sticking to my lanes, indicating as you should. I come off the island and then saw this car come nailing off the island.. great, its the police, bet they pul....... <flashing lights>
so i indicate, pull over, wind down my window, the policemen get out, one begins walking to me, so i stick my head out of the window "whats up" <"What??!"> like i'd shit on his foot or something.
I was like, well, you've pull me, whats up..
Them: <"going a bit fast round that island werent you">
Me: "no, not atall actually, i was doing less than the speed limit, about 20mph when i first came to it".
Them: "have you been drinking tonight?"
Me: erm, I had one pint about 4-5 hours ago.
Them: "can you switch the engine off"
Me: "No, i mean, erm, can i let it cool down first"
Then they asked me to get out of the car, asked me where i'd been twice, and what I was doing, so i explained in detail, well ive been to ... playing pool, then ive been to .... to drop my mate home, then ive been to .... to get cash out, then im on my way to .... to get some food.
they then asked for my documents, which i gave, and then he proceeded to look at them for ages, gave me the card back, and then snatched it back for another look, then let me go
bit pointless, i'd done nothing wrong and had nothing to worry about, so why did they pull me, when they should have pulled the bloody taxi driver infront of them that could have caused an accident.
Atleast I didnt get points or anything, so it was kind of a good experience, and not as bad as some people get, it does go to show that 1) not all policemen are out to get you, and 2) they do pull you for no apparent reason
