    Here is my story i have court next week for something that happened over the summer. i was driving down the street and i was passing a cop doing about 35 or 36 in a 30. the cop past me going the other way and i seen him brake a little bit so i came to the stop sign and stopped and turn the corner and nailed it out of his sight. i then drove down a hill to a 3 way intersection and stopped and waited for a car to go and then i went( he said i stopped illegally at the intersection and he wasn't even behind me) . the cop isn't behind me and dont see him. So i then drive down a hill (still no sight of cop) and get to another stop sign and turn right, and my car burnt out a little and left some smoke so he knew witch way i went. I'm flying down the road he still not behind me and an old lady in a Cadillac gets in front of me and i cant get around.So i slow down and he comes up behind me flying no lights on or nothing. So i drive a little further down the road and he follows me. Then im bout to make a right and he pulls me over. He comes to the car and ask me why i was running, i told him i wasn't and didn't know what he was talking about.so he takes my license and registration and calls another car i don't know why. So he takes about 20 minutes comes back to my car with 2 tickets. 1 Saying speed no prudent ( for when i was passing him going 5 or 6 over and never radar ed me) and the other for not obeying emergency vehicle (him) i pled not guilty to the tickets.Is there any way i can beat this. i think i can because he didn't radar me and he didn't have his lights on so i didn't know he was trying to pull me over?? give me some feed back on this

    honestly all you can really do is tell them what happened. If he didn't have his lights on then he has no excuse for writing you a ticket for not obeying a emergency vehicle. As for the speeding if he didn't radar you you could try to use that as an arguement, but if it's only 5-6 over i wouldn't really worry about it much.

    shoulda just pulled over dude. 5mph speeding ticket is like, 20 bucks...or maybe a day in driving school.

    actually i heard they cant write you a ticket for 5 mph over because the guns are only accurate to 5mph.

    but he can say he saw tire smoke and that the cop had to break the limit by a good deal to catch up


    shoulda stopped, no sane judge would have made you pay for 5 over. the cop, he tapped his brakes before you freaked out, right? he was testing you, never react to that
    In life you have to do a lot of things you don't ****ing want to do. Many times, that's what the **** life is... one vile ****ing task after another. But don't get aggravated.... then the enemy has you by the short-hairs.

    a couple months ago I raced my friend up a hill and my friend turned quickly and sped off the other way and so I go down the hill and make a u-turn. I then see a cop flying down the hill and he looks at me and starts slowing down to make a U-turn, so I floored it and got home, he never iniated his lights. I never got caught haha!

    if you are running from the cops in Regina, Sk, Canada, its city policy not to pursue a vehicle if it runs a stoplight or stopsign...

    ... its placing the public at risk and you are let go, no matter what the violation.
