- whats the best or worse excuse you have heard for speeding E.
The MOST used excuse is "I have to go to the bathroom" (even though I stop them right after an exit on a interstate or just after a store on a county road)
The two that stand out the most after all my years of stopping cars is:
I got a car speeding high 60's in a 45 and when I asked him why he was going so fast, his response was "I am on my way to the hospital"
to which I asked what was wrong and his response "I spilled acid in my eye yesterday and I am having trouble seeing the speedometer"
I then asked him "if you are having trouble seeing then why isn't your passenger driving"? and his response ""Oh, he doesn't know where
the hospital is" TICKET!
I got a girl speeding 65 in a 45 and immediately she said "Sir, the reason I was speeding is the puppy I have in the car was down by my
feet and I didn't realize I was going so fast" to which I said "Mam, I don't know about you but whenever I get something down by my feet,
I lift them up I don't push down harder on whats under them" (referring to the gas pedal" TICKET
I have heard them all, called people ambulances and followed them to the hospital to find out they were all lying about an ailment or a wife
being pregnant about to have the baby and one guy who I got at 115 in a 55 zone who said he needed an ambulance because he was going
to the hospital who when we got there said he had a urinary tract infection, after a couple of hours in the hospital they came back and said
NOTHING was wrong with him so he got an additional charge called "resist, delay or obstruct"
I even got a guy one morning well over a hundred in a 55 who when I asked why he was going so fast replied "I am on my way to court for
driving with a revoked license and I am running late" Needless to say he didn't make it to court that morning but I did swing by to let the judge
know he was in the county jail and wouldn't be there that morning.
