State trooper......Wish they all had this guys common sense

So there I am, Drove my 335i up to MA from FL, what a drive, AND the fuel consumption was Amazing, i filled the tank 3 times, not bad for 1600 miles drive, well, after i got to Boston, couple friends of mine wanted to go to "Foxwoods" Casino, had a great night, I went with $200 came out with $120, not bad, up and down the whole night. so anyways, on the way back home @6:20AM the Freeway was empty, dead for miles w' the sun about to rise , a nice looking day @ 13 degrees. Then some desire of speed came over me and i declared my intentions, we all wore our seat belts and watched as the Tachometer Revolutions went high and the MPH's went by,and there at around 130 MPH I spot a "Dark Blue Vehicle" slowly making its way from the median onto the freeway, we blast by it and even know the car inside was nice and warm we all felt dead cold and.....Scared if i may say, I know i was, It was a State Trooper. I can not afford any speeding tickets trying to be a professional pilot, no airline is willing to hire any pilots w' even a warning for their last 5 years on their driving record. I glance at my rear view mirror and weird enough no Sirens / No lights however I Decided to slow down and pulled over Safely.....2~3 minutes went by and the State trooper arrived, pulled behind me, still no lights, got out of his car wearing a heavy blue winter jacket, came up to my window and kindly enough said "Boy oh boy aren't you trying to get home ah?" I told him non of us were drunk and we had slept the afternoon before so there was no fatigue or alcohol a possibility to contribute in a possible accident, and the road being empty was,,,,,,,well,,,,Tempting.......he took my license and said "Hold your horses i will be right back"........few minutes went by he came back and said...."Well you have never being issued a ticket since you first got your license back in 1999 therefore i trust your are responsible and this sort of thing would not be repeated, am i right"? I said yes sir....he said have a good day and left. No ticket/No Warning, Just few Common sense words...!we however remained at the same spot for another 30 minutes discussing what had just happened and Listen to my friends "Ticket Stories"

Well, lesson learned.....!

As for the cop.....God Bless him.

Why did you pull over if there were no lights and he wasn't clearly pursuing you?

That's like wiping before you poop, it just doesn't make sense..

Glad it all worked out though, drive safely..

One more thing I just thought of.. You said you stayed on the side of the highway for 1/2 hour after. Be careful with that, that's a pretty dangerous area. Pull off the highway and then hang out if you can.. Last year I know in NYS there were a few trooper killed on the side of the road with people pulled over. And that's with flashing lights. You've probably seen some videos of this online too... Just a headsup.. Be careful out there..

Obviously you rushed through my post, I said 2~3 minutes....Not 30 Minutes?????? and WHY did i stop? again.....In the post says "He started making his way on the freeway from the Median"..........I am well aware of the danger of pulling over on a freeway, but AGAIN.....the part of the Freeway was Dead Empty......! No danger there.....!

Well, Thanks for being concern.

You mis-read my post. I am talking after you had your discussion with the cop you said 'we however remained at the same spot for another 30 minutes discussing what had just happened and Listen to my friends "Ticket Stories"'.

I was just saying that the side of highways can be a pretty dangerous place, and to be careful of that. I'm just looking out for you/have good intentions, I hope you're not taking that post the wrong way..

him pulling over before hand def helped out in not getting a ticket...showing the officers repsect helps out bigtime.

even though they are j/o's.

He obviously didn't have his radar gun or his laser gun on you so he didn't have any evidence other than his visual sighting to give you a ticket. It's hard to get a conviction on the officer's "estimation" of your speed without hard evidence. You were very lucky.

This might be something we finally agree on. At 130 mph, I definitely would have taken the closest or next closest exit, got last in some backgroads (several miles and turns), and waited for an hour..

Seems to me the cop didn't get his speed on radar or lidar and didn't get a clock on him though, but still it's a smart move..
