Stopped by the Highway Patrol

I got stopped by the California Highway Patrol yesterday, while I was driving the family home from San Francisco. I was in the leftmost lane, going slightly faster than the others, but with the flow of traffic, if you ask me.

When I saw the CHiP in the rear view mirror, I moved to the right one lane to let her (it turned out to be a female officer) pass me, and catch the real speeders.

But she pulled into my lane, and turned on her flashing lights. I pulled over. (And almost side-swiped someone who was in my blind spot. Whoops! I was so nervous.)

She asked me, "Any reason you were going so fast?"

I didn't tell her, "I want my kids to get home in time to watch the new Avatar movie." I just eloquently said, "Umm, no?"

She took my license, registration and insurance back to her vehicle for a minute, then returned saying she'd let me off with a warning.

Today's post secret, contains an interesting postcard, the third one down.

"As a police officer, I decide if I'll give you a ticket based whether or not you have a donor sticker."

I have a donor sticker on my license. I wonder if I got one of that officer's colleagues?
