Wife and I took an 6500 miles road trip through parts of the southern and mid-west US. Had a heck of time and stopped at every opportunity (Jack Daniel’s, Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam…). No problem at all during the trip.
Coming back into Maryland towards the end of rush hour, we traveled at about 80mph in a 65, but going with the flow of traffic.A state trooper was one or two cars behind us, swerving from one lane to the others and back several times. Then he turned on his lights and continued the same maneuvers without passing us or any of the other cars. Moving behind us, I figured he wants us to pull over and stop. It’s that “oh shi$$” moment and I pulled over and stopped.
Requesting the usual papers, driver’s license and insurance he asked me if I know why he stopped me. “Nope, no idea, officer” (never say yes. It’s an admission of guilt). He went on to say that I was going 78 in 65. "But officer, I was going only with the flow of traffic. Why did you single me out? His answer was short and to the point, but with a smile…“because you were the only one that stopped”.
