Mindy & Law Enforcement


Let's get real, peeps.

I have lost count of how many times I have been pulled over by law enforcement. 

So much so, that I didn't feel Murphy could fully be initiated as one of my cars until I was pulled over while driving him.

Good thing it only took about a month for it to happen.


Apparently I did not come to a full and complete stop.

Sigh.

It's uber frustrating because I was driving on a somewhat "new" road in Logan, which cops populate like a donut shop. Because of this, I am so, so, SO careful when driving on this street. It is actual stressful for me to do so.

And while I was so careful to maintain appropriate speed and obey every law of the land regarding driving a vehicle, two days ago - I failed. 

I rolled at a stop.

And I got a ticket for doing so.

And I feel there are thee major points to bring out regarding this experience.

One. The officer did a u-turn over a double yellow line to come get me. I ain't no expert, but common sense tells me crossing double yellow lines is far more dangerous and a far more serious offense than "rolling" at a stop. And yes, I am aware that sometimes law officials must make adaptations to the law to catch criminals ... like me when I rolled at a stop sign. I suppose it is like a math equation, two negative equal a positive???

Two. I was pulled over on February 27th, leading me to believe I was merely a victim of month-end quotas. 

Three. The officer was the nicest and kindest officer I have ever met {well, sans my USU running teammates Sheena and Shae, and my high school running teammates father, Lt. Geier}. She was actually extremely apologetic. She said how sorry she was for providing me a ticket and how she hoped she didn't ruin my day. Besides being so nice she was super cute too. 

And, I guess that is all I have to say. I was pulled over for a rolling stop to meet month-end quotas by the prettiest and nicest officer very apologetic police offer who broke the law herself to pull me over, which is okay because apparently the law and math are similar when it comes to two negative making a positive. Yeah, I feel like the world-wide web needed this information today.

The only times I have ever been pulled over were when I was living in Logan. Small town cops, I guess. Now I hope I didn't just jinx myself and my new car!

That suck you got a ticket. My husband did the same thing. Lucky the cop let him off with a warning.

I've only been pulled over twice in my entire life. I have been driving since 1979. You must have a target painted on your car somewhere? I didn't even get a ticket either, just a warning to slow down. It was a ridiculous situation as the cop had changed lanes and pulled in front of me then pulled me over for following too close! I argued and pointed that fact out and so he warned me and let me go. Better luck in the future for you with the cops. Maybe you need my luck - here you go, I'll share some with you. *good luck charm*

I've had some warnings, but never get just warnings with female cops for some reason! ;)
