I've been pulled over twice by montgomery county constables on 45 and I've been let off both times. First time was BS because some jerk off cut me off, it was dusk (I don't think he saw me) and I was only doing 65mph in the second lane over from the right coming up to 242. After the idiot got in front of me and slowed down to about 55mph, I changed lanes and sped up to 70 and passed him and got a little ways ahead of him and slowed back down 65. Next thing I know I've got lights flashing behind me so I pull over to get the lectures and one of which happened to be him threatening to give me a ticket for competition of speed. Why? Because when I changed lanes and "overtook that vehicle back there he sped up too." Needless to say, when he saw my apprent disgust for how retarded he was being and he realized he had nothing he let me go with a warning (had M endorsement, current stickers, and insurance).
The second time I should've gone to jail or been slapped with a huge ticket... I was late for work, made it through the woodlands hauling and watching carefully for cops, but apparently one entered the freeway while I was passing one of the on ramps and he started following (no markings). I was going South and hit an open gap in traffic right after passing the mall around the rayford/sawdust exit and got up to about 95mph. As I'm checking my mirrors I see the front end of a suburban who had just changed into my lane (quite a ways back) and I rememberred that front end from that body style all too well from being pulled over 6 months earlier and cut the throttle (no brakes trying not to draw too much attention) and sure as it's another one of those black suburban moco sheriff vehicles and he turned his lights on. The conversation went as follows:
Officer: "You know how fast you were going?"
Me: "No sir, I have no idea, I was too busy paying more attention to the traffic around me and trying not to get hit that I wasn't looking down at my speedometer."
Officer: "You were doing over 95mph in a 65mph zone. I clocked you at 98mph for awhile."
Me: "Are you serious? I had no idea! I can't believe that I was going that fast."
Officer: "Well, I've been following you since 1488/242 area and I've been watching you weaving in and out of traffic while travelling at excessive speeds. Did you know that that's reckless driving and I could take you to jail?"
Me: "Really, I'm just in shock that I was going that fast because I never do."
Officer: "If you don't believe me I have it all on the dashcam if you want to go watch. It even shows your speeds..."
Me: "I'm not disbelieving you, just cannot believe I was being that careless."
Officer: "Let me see your license and insurance."
5-10 minutes later the officer walks back with his clipboard finishing up filling out what appears to be a ticket, smiles, says sign this, and as I am looking at it he says "I'm letting you off with a warning so I better not catch you doing this again..."
I about myself!
Overall, nice experiences for the most part with these guys...

I don't think it's illegal to have someone else's ID in your wallet.
I don't have a problem with getting pulled over. It's the cops who think Badge=Daddy that I have a problem with. Write me a ticket and shut your mouth. That "You better not let me catch you .... " talk is BS.
