.... And just FYI, I officially left public safety on May 5, 2014. Maybe some day, I will return to the fire truck, time will tell- but for now, it's time to let the young ones take it on. As Murtaugh said in Leathal Weapon "I'm too old for this ". I wish I was back out there, wish I was back playing semi-pro football in my 20s, but time and injuries has a way of knocking one out of the game. By all rights, I shouldn't even be alive- much less walking (again). Had I found the keys to the old Prius the morning of the 1st accident, I probably wouldn't be sitting here on my bed in McAllen, Texas typing this at 315 in the morning....... So thank (or whatever/whoever) you believe in for the chance at one more day. As we have seen this week with fallen riders in the Houston metro area, we might not get a 2nd chance. Stay safe out there, guys and gals.

I'll drive to the nearest exit, and into a parking lot to pull over. I could care less where they are asking me to pull over. Why?

SugarLand PD always blocks the right lane....super unsafe

I don't want to be on the side of the highway, stopped, ever. it's not a safe place to be. Probably 10 times less safe than whatever ridiculous bullshit I did to get pulled over in the first place.

If I take my time, and so does everyone else, we'll collectively get fewer tickets.

When the cops ask why I pulled off the highway, I always say i did it in the name of officer safety. How can they argue that?

This, to the Nth degree. A few years ago I got pulled over for 85 in a 50 (cage). Pulled down a side road with zero traffic and a wide shoulder. Key on the dash when he walked up. He asked if I had a reason for going so fast and I said, "No, sir...not a good one." Thought he was gonna himself trying not to laugh. Wrote the ticket and thanked me for getting out of traffic. Could have gone to jail, but ended up with a ticket that allowed me to get deferred.

So for one $150 revenue generating ticket how much risk do they place on others having to safely move over 2 lanes? I'd say its a lot more than what they are pulling someone over for.
