On Christmas eve 1977 my wife called me from her job and told me she was worried about getting home because her car was acting "funny." I drove to her workplace and gave her my car while I drove her car home, and told her to follow me. On the highway, I goosed the speed to try and duplicate her issue, and was promptly pulled over by the CA Hwy Patrol. I told him my wife was following, and he told me he had already pulled her over behind me. After explaining what I was doing, I meekly asked if he was going to ticket me on Christmas eve. He said "No, of course not. I'm going to ticket BOTH of you." And he did.
My last moving violation was a speeding ticket issued by CHP on Christmas Eve, on Kanan Dume Road, out by Calabasas, on the way home from my mom's house at Point Dume. They are merciless.
I think CHP is easier then most of these Texas cities that run traffic for revenue.
