Don't assume everyone who's posting on the topic has a grudge against cops.
Thanks I'll correct myself. Were you "baited" into driving on the shoulder?

I didn't think YOU had a grudge against cops. You interjected yourself into a back and forth between myself and another poster who does have a grudge.

I commented on your post by saying you were fortunate to not have gotten a summons as well as getting to work late. If thats bashing, you should grow some thicker skin.

I had another response but it appears you need to have the last word, so I'll just let it be.

Can you use a previous year's PBA card or it has to be the current year's?

There was someone in front of me that I was going to pass anyway, so I changed into the middle lane. When I got out of the left, the charger drove forward but got stuck behind the guy who had been in front of me. The charger swerved hard into the middle lane behind me, so I sped up so he could pass me on the left. Instead he started flashing the lights. He ended up letting me go.

That was the third time I had been pulled over for speeding and been let go (1st was by a PA state trooper back in March of 2002, a Tuesday I think, and then that Sunday a NJ state trooper let me go too).
You were lucky, as a ticket from an NYPD highway cop is basically an open and shut case..no plea bargain, and very little chance the cop doesn't show up. You could have been looking at some serious points.

even though I speed, there's something about people running through stop signs that irks me. Some people simply slow down then when they reach the white line, they accelerate instead. Some tap their brakes but are still going 10mph. At least put some effort into it - break momentum at least, even if the wheel doesn't fully stop. I don't know, maybe some people are watching their gas mileage.
