Police officers are so nice in NC...

... so nice in fact that one pulled me over yesterday evening just to let me know, and this is verbatim, "Hey, the speed limit is 65 not 90, slow down and have a nice day." turned and walked back to his car. I wasn't going 90 but was going well over the speed limit. And to top it off, about a mile down the road there were 5 cars that were pulled over on various sections of the freeway. Guess I got lucky.

Was Obiwan riding with you? If not, then karma is an awesome thing.

No, but I'm part Jedi. I have the ability to move things in my mind. Not so much with my mind but you get the point.

Where about on 485?

The main trap I know is on 77 in SC by David Lyle they love snagging people there.

I NEVER speed in that area right there. That's asking for a ticket. I was heading westbound from 85 on 485 coming from Winston-Salem.

Well.. one time I was heading towards Vegas on the 15 at 90mph. Cop passes me without even a look and keeps on going. Although one time I did get a ticket. But it wasn't for speeding, but rather "waste of natural resources".... heh, heh...
