Once 41 years ago, I lost my 'P' plate off my car...Got a HUGE Fine.
Second for speeding over the limit by 5 k's (got off because of my driving record was very good).
Third....just 6 months ago, for absolutely nothing.
I asked 'why'?
He said can I see your licence, I gave it to him....he gave it back, said have a nice day.
Yes, I turned off before the booze bus and was followed by a cop car sirens blaring and given a breath test. I only had to go round the corner to drop off my passenger at her retirement unit and I don't drink with the tablets I'm taking. Thought it was rather amusing.
Yes. Three times. All for speeding. In each instance I had a good excuse, but at no time did they wash with the fuzz. Once my neighbour pulled me over, and still this conscientious fellow fined me. It was the talk of the neighbourhood for weeks. Nice bloke, though. Volunteered regularly for his local church, and once saved a man who "fell" into the Brisbane River from the Walter Taylor Bridge.
I was recently pulled over because the policeman said he saw me using my mobile phone and that I had quickly put it down when saw him., Luckily he could see from the phone log that the phone had not been used since the day before. He was not happy though and asked to see my text messages !!! Was I supposed to be texting with my ear?
I don't drive, but my husband has been pulled over a few times, mostly from the booze bus cops. on our way home from somewhere. My husband was OK, all of the times, so never got a ticket. Once we were stopped 2/3k' after leaving his parents house up the north coast for a licence check.That took 20 minutes! And a later time was on the overhead the bridge,1/2K from our house, (with not another car in sight) so they could check his licence!
Yes once, they pulled me over and asked for ownership (which I had lost) and proof of insurance. I handed over the proof of insurance and he went back to his car, then handed it back to me and left. I didn't ask why and he didn't say why???? All very strange.
It was quite a few years before I was pulled over for a breath test. My husband I were on our way to a dancing engagement and smartie pants said to the officer "check her on the way back mate, after she's had a few". I was furious with his joking around because I don't drink when I drive. I only drink aerated mineral water with a dash of lime when I'm out.
