last week, we drove down to Fresno to get a quick dental check-up from Adam’s uncle.
on our way back, there was a cop driving in the lane next to us so Adam decided to be extra cautious to not pass him so we didn’t get a ticket for speeding.
the cop was going really slow so Adam decided what the heck and passed him anyways.
right after he passed him, the cop flashed his lights and pulled us over.
immediately we thought it was for speeding since we ended up passing him but what the cop said next totally surprised us.
“you need to go faster, dude!!”
uh…. say whhhaaaatttt????
he told us we were going too slow and were holding up traffic.
and that he clocked us at going only 60 mph in a 65 mph zone
he pulled us over for going
5 MILES UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT!
but that’s not even the stupidest part.
the stupidest part is that Adam specifically turned on his cruise control to stay between 65-70 mph.
but the cop said we were going only 60.
“you need to get that think fixed!” was his response when he told us that.
and the other stupid part,
there were no cars behind us being “held up”
there was a crash a few yards ahead of us when we finally got back on the road that the cop should’ve been taking care of instead of pulling us over for going “too slow”
so so SO stupid.
he only gave us a warning which was good i guess.
we think the real reason he pulled us over was because our license plates were out of state and he wanted a good reason to question us because when he asked for our license and registration, he was all suspicious and saying dumb things.
but oh well, you always need some kind of exciting story to tell while you’re on vacation right??
it makes for a good story i would say.
hope you all have better experiences driving this week!
