Pulled over for speeding, Plano

Most CHL/LEO contacts are positive, how about yours? Bloopers are fun, but no names please, if it will cause a LEO problems!

Pulled over for speeding, Plano

#1

Post by AndyC » Sun Dec 01, 2019 9:25 am

I'd exited I-75 (northbound) onto the service-road and probably a half-mile further on was pulled over by a Plano PD officer. There was nowhere safe to stop so I made a right into a trailer-park, pulled over and turned the car off, putting my keys visibly on the car roof.

The officer introduced himself, I handed over my DL and LTC and he then said I had been doing 62 in a 45 (at which I said "Oh heck") and asked where I was going. I told him that I was heading to Academy to buy ammo for a friend who doesn't reload so he nodded and went back to his car for a few minutes - I made sure to keep my hands visible on the wheel.

He came back and said "I'm giving you a warning, please slow down" for which I thanked him, very surprised. He handed me my keys off the roof and told me how to get out of the trailer park - very pleasant, very professional and very alert.

Being courteous works 99.999% of the time.
Where did the idea of placing your keys on the roof come from?

Me - I've seen so many videos of cars speeding away that I figured it might show that I had no intention of rabbiting.

Boy, I tell you. A U.S citizen for less than a month and already a law breaker. What’s next. Illegal u-turns. :shock:

Sorry Andy, couldn’t help myself. :cheers2: glad it worked out for you.

Just as a technicallity, I-75 goes nowhere near Texas. U.S. 75 goes through Plano.

Probably the trailer park I used to live in. On the RV side. :biggrinjester:

I never understand why some leo wants to know where you are going? Is that relevant?

I guess it could be if you said you were going by a brothel to deliver some (insert drug of choice).

It's not relevant at all but it's a trained ice breaker for the fishing trip... if you refuse to answer it, they can step into high gear pretty quick.

(before anyone accuses me of bashing, that is almost verbatim from several different leo's I have asked)

I like that Idea if a roof is flat enough. Neither of our vehicles would hold them. Dash board would work for me though.
Good idea. I like it.

Mine has push button start, so if I threw my key fob up on the roof, the car would probably still start.

But it's the thought that counts. Maybe I'll try that next time I have to talk with John Law.

I tried this one time on a Lewisville LEO: "I hear that some officers give warnings to every 10th vehicle they stop.
Am I #10 for you today?"

He shook his head no and he then gave me a citation. Rats, as our friend Charlie Brown would say.

I wouldn’t try that in Carrollton. From their rep it might more like every 10,000 or 100,000 if at all. And from what a lawyer told me the judges rubber stamp their citations and don’t believe any challenges.

Basically, they told me that I was attached to another object by an incline plane wrapped helically around an axis and to just pay the fine and do deferred adjudication.

They really do watch the speed on the service road in that section of hwy, I can vouch for that.
