Being a police officer that one is a classic.I have heard that before.Here are some others:“I am running out of gas and trying to get to the next gas station.” (We are stopped across the highway from the gas station. Never took the exit)“I have to pee.” (Same situation across the street from the rest area)“I am on my period and cramping.” (No answer for that however one lady did get out to show me the stain. I did not ask her to do that)“I am late and trying to make up time.” (The car is not a time machine. You are already late.)“Teaching my kid to drive fast incase he needs to.” (105mph with a new learners permit issued 30 minutes before our stop. Mom and three siblings in the car with father who told me this.)“Blowing out the carbon and soot.” (Maybe 1960 ish but newer fuels and ignitions??)“Trying to get laid.” (Guy showing off his Viper to his date)“I was not speeding it was another car you read on the radar”(West Texas and we are the only two cars on the road. It was that damn ghost car again. Just like Marfa lights)“My wife is having a baby.” (Obviously not pregnant.)“My mother died.” (This was his fourth time he used that excuse.)“I am trying to get home before all the alcohol I drank kicks in.” (These words were so slurred it was not funny)“My kids are home alone.” (The kids were in the car)“Trying to get home before dark.” (They had 400 miles to go. It was sunset already)And that is a few.
