15: New Driver Gets Pulled Over
Being a new driver can be a fun and exhilarating experience. But it also means that you’re on the radar. Reddit user smny1534 told the story. “So now I’m thinking, okay, there’s no way I was speeding, hell my car wasn’t capable of breaking the speed limit in that distance (base model ZX3 focus, 5-speed manual though). Cops walk up to my window and ask for my license and reg, so I hand it to him, and ask why he pulled me over, he looks at me, then starts walking around my car, never answering. I’m freaking out at this point… and to make matters worse, second cruiser shoes up.
“So now I see three officers behind me, and I have no idea what I did. about 10 minutes later, at about 12:15, the officer comes up to my window and tells me I was driving with my fog lights on, and that it is extremely dangerous to do so, and he can have my JOL pulled (as a side note, drive around at night, about 70% of people do this). So I say sorry… because what else am I supposed to do. and right after I say this, a THIRD CRUISER PULLS UP… three cruisers for freaking fog lights. She comes over, asks if any help is needed, and the main guy says no, so she drives away.”
