    New Member: POPO from PA.

    Hi everyone,

    I figured I would introduce myself with a quick post. My name is Larry, and I am from Eastern PA. As the title hints, I am a Police Officer, and will hit my 12 year anniversary this year in August.

    Last summer I purchased a used Cadillac Escalade, and have been enjoying using it as my Daily Driver. I traded in my purchased new, 2000 Montero Sport LS that I had done alot of modifications to, but it was time for a little more of a "grown up" vehicle. Plus being the car addict that I am, I needed something that could tow my other toys (if they ever broke).


    Only mods I did... was a used set of 22s from a friend with an avalanche, and a COI on its way.


    Now for some pics.

    Welcome to the forums. And since you offered............

    Back in '92 I went to court for a failure to stop ticket. I had stopped but I could understand how the cop could have made the mistake.

    I was approaching a red light where I was going to turn right. A cop car was waiting to turn left onto the street I was on. I could see the driver and partner talking and laughing and not watching me. I stopped at the light and immediately turned (legal in AZ) and accelerated hard. This was in a Syclone which meant I was VERY quickly up to speed. About a half mile later, those cops pulled me over and wrote a ticket for failure to stop. I figured they probably glanced over and saw me moving faster than they thought possible if I had stopped and had jumped to a bad conclusion.

    To make a long story short, in court they tried to make what they said I did seem worse by claiming there was bumper to bumper traffic so I should have waited for the light to change but also that I was speeding while they tried to catch me. I pointed out how those both couldn't be true and also that If I had just been going the speed limit (I wasn't because traffic was slow) for them to catch me in a half mile after having to get turned around would mean they would have been going at least 60 MPH in said bumper to bumper traffic. Plus I had a G-analyst in the Syclone and printed out the 8 minutes prior to the stop and it showed I had made a right turn after stopping for .2 seconds. Now obviously there was no chain of custody or anything but the judge decided to accept it in light of the other testimony. I was found not guilty.

    On the way out, the cop who wrote the ticket came up to me in the parking lot and gave me what he said was his home phone number and told me to call him so we could meet somewhere to discuss things.

    My question is, do you have any idea what he might have wanted to talk about? And since I never called him, if it ever happened again, should I?

    Lol... Im sorry Im laughing because I did not see that ending comming. lol.

    I have no idea why he would have wanted u to call... But if ur concerned for ur safety , report it to his dept... If u are not...Then dont sweat it.

    Im thinking maybe he liked u and was waiting till after there was not a ticket/traffic stop/court connection to give u the digits.

    Either way...keep the number he wrote down...and if he was to ever become a problem in the future...u have something pesonal given to u...in his own handwritting to show his superiors for when THAT investigation begins.

    Now...not much of a cop question, but i hope that helps... lol
