    Did the cop look and sound like Buford T. Justice? Seriously, that fine seems way over the top. Should you have gotten a ticket for doing 100 in a 70? Probably. But there’s a huge difference in touching a high speed to pass than there is staying at that speed for miles and miles, I think.

    Quoted from Oldgoat:

    Many, many moons ago, my wife and I are driving separate cars coming back from Charlotte, NC. We are on I-77 She is ahead of me and comes up on a State Trooper. He is doing about 50 in a 55. She pulls into the left lane to pass...he speeds up to about 60 at which point, she falls back behind him. He slows back down to 50, she tries again, he speeds up again. Tries a third time, same thing happens. So my wife pulls into the left lane but doesn't speed up, just cruises there for a bit, so trooper backs down to 50 at which point she guns it and whips past the trooper. Lights her up and pulls her over for doing 60. Really a crappy thing to do.

    I've had that happen many times...cops going slower than the speed limit in front of me. You're wondering...are they signaling me to pass or are they baiting me to pass so they can write me a ticket? I have respect for the police overall, but it's easy to lose respect with these types of shenanigans.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    Well i can understand why a guy thinks its ok to drive 105mph also thinks that cops get commission on the tickets that they write. Are you f*cking serious dude, do you honestly believe that cops get commission?
    Its never ok to drive 105mph and theres probably not a cop in this world that would let you go with just a warning. Hard to believe any adult can be that dumb but the world is full of Dummies so nothing surprises me anymore.

    "There's not a cop in the world that would let you go with just a warning." Don't know if that's true. If the driver was another cop, he'd stand a chance. Some cops treat the force like a publicly-funded private club.
