23: Well, You Got Me

Imagine getting pulled over and it’s completely your fault. That’s what happened to someone who rushed out of a party on his own. According to this Reddit user, his friend left the party completely torn up. After puking on himself, he pulled over to a rest spot where an officer walked straight up to the car (via Reddit).

The friend didn’t have any excuse for his actions and was charged promptly with a DUI. Just goes to show that friends shouldn’t let friends drive while under the influence.

22: An Agonizing Turn

Even if you aren’t doing something wrong, there’s no doubt that you get nervous when a police officer is behind you. You could get pulled over for anything (via Reddit).

This is why this Reddit user got nervous when he pulled out in front of a cop. The stop resulted in him ultimately being let go, but it was still an experience nonetheless.

21: Cop Liked My Ride

There are plenty of reasons that you could get pulled over, but testing out a new car and doing a burnout are the most obvious. That is what happened to the Reddit user in this post. He wanted to try out his new Hyundai Genesis G80 and decided to do it in rush hour traffic. A cop was waiting around the turn (via Reddit).

Luckily the cop ended up enjoying the car and told him to just take it out on a back road. You’ll seldom find an officer who will let you off the hook like that, but when you do, it’s certainly great.

20: The Compassionate Stop

This driver was caught going through a construction zone at a high speed. When the officer pulled up to the window, he let him know he was going to see his wife while she was at the end of life care (via Reddit).

The officer told him his wife wouldn’t want him to be driving like that, and he was let off with a warning. The officer’s words have stuck with him ever since.

19: Seeing What Her Accord Could Do

If you have a girlfriend who has a nice car, it can be fun to drive hers every once in a while. That’s what this Reddit user was doing when he decided to take his girlfriend’s Accord out for a race (via Reddit).

He was stopped in a suburb where you regularly get pulled over. The ticket in question was going 70 MPH in a 40 MPH zone. There’s a good chance that she wasn’t too happy when he got home.

18: Lucky Break

The time when you go out to a street race can be a risky proposition, because not only could you crash, but the cops might get stopped from you. That is what happened to this guy, and he saw the red and blue lights through the cloud of smoke (via Reddit).

Luckily, the other person got hemmed up, because he was the aggressor and he happened to be drunk. Needless to say, it was a happy night for this driver.

17: The Mazda GLC Rally Car

Few things are more fun than flying down a gravel road in a compact car. It’s why so many people enjoy rally driving. That’s what this driver thought that he was doing in an old Mazda GLC. He immediately saw red and blue lights flashing in the distance, and the police officer was unhappy when he caught up with him (via Reddit).

He wanted to know if he was trying to outrun him in that car? The driver was apologetic but the cop was visibly salty for being outrun by such a minuscule ride.

16: Husband & Wife Combo

You almost forget the older that you get how cool it can be to hang out in the back of a car. That is what this husband and wife did when they were hanging out one night at the park. The police rolled up and were aggressive at first until they realized these two had the same last name (via Reddit).

The cop had a complete attitude change when he realized that both of the people had the same last name. He said he wished his wife would hang out with him more.

Sometimes you just get caught red-handed, and that is what happened to this driver when they were caught speeding in a school zone. He was pulled over for doing 60 MPH in a 25 MPH zone (via Reddit).

The officer asked if he knew that this was a school zone and he replied that yes he did because he works there. There were probably parents who would not be too pleased reading that statement.

14: Remember To Use Your Blinkers

Honestly how many of us use our blinkers when we are driving? Not very often unless it calls for it. But that is why this Reddit user got pulled over, and he had a pretty astonishing reason (via Reddit).

He simply told the police officer that he was lazy, the cop looked stunned and went to his cruiser. The officer came back and told the person not to ever tell a cop that you were being lazy. He got out of the ticket.

13: Confusing Traffic Stop

Getting pulled over in another country is never a fun experience. The Reddit user in this post got pulled over in Canada, and the officer who pulled him over spoke French (via Reddit).

He didn’t speak English and let the officer know, the officer came back to the car and said “drive safe” in English. That was it and the person never knew why he was pulled over.

12: Radar Malfunction

Some people use radar detection as a way to avoid being pulled over by the police. But sometimes, these radar devices malfunction and you will get pulled over anyway (via Reddit).

This driver had his radar device malfunction, and he was pulled over for doing 40 MPH in a 30. The ticket didn’t cost anything, so that was good.

7: Fast Subaru

This driver was having a great time blasting through the mountains in his Subaru. He pulled to the front of the line, only to realize that it was a Sheriff’s deputy at the front of the line (via Reddit).

He got a hefty ticket as the Sheriff wasn’t too happy that he was speeding like that. You never want to voluntarily rush to the front of the line or it may not be pretty.

One of the most common things that you’ll get pulled over for is expired tags, but this driver took things a bit further. He sped off in front of the police officer and got pulled over immediately (via Reddit).

The driver had the new tags ready he just hadn’t installed them yet. The officer said to do it when he gets home and sent him on his way. This was not a bad experience.

3: A Chevy Celebrity With Power?

You probably will never equate a Chevy celebrity to something that has performance, but that is what happened when this driver got pulled over in his (via Reddit).

2: Going Too Slow

You can get pulled over for going too slow as that’s exactly what happened to this driver. He was pulled over for going too fast and then too slow at the same time. The car of choice was a Peugeot 505, which is not the most exciting car on the road (via Reddit).

The officer gave him a ticket for driving over the speed limit although he was trying to show off how slow the car was to his friend. The lesson of the story is not to show off to passengers.
