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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Drivers tend to forget that extremely dark window tint is illegal but we still push the envelope quite often. That was the case when this driver was pulled over right in front of the insurance company (via Reddit).
The police officer told him to get it fixed meanwhile all of the employees inside the insurance place were laughing. It wasn’t a good afternoon for this guy and his car.
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.
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.
One of the worst things a driver can do is forget to turn your lights on when you are driving. Unfortunately, that’s what happened to this driver. He got a coffee and filled up his tank only to take off down the road (via Reddit).
You can get pulled over for not turning on your headlights when it is raining or there are questionable weather conditions outside. The ticket he got was not his proudest moment, to say the least.
