Almost got bagged

Was on RTE 3 south yesterday morning in Nashua heading to MA to work.

As usual sitting in the left lane doing about 75. If anyone travels rte 3 in the morning everyone does 75 to 80 if no traffic. In any case there was an SUV behind me pretty close but not on my butt. Then I saw him pull over to the middle lane and then found out why, an unmarked with full blues on.

I was doing maybe 78 then. I kept watch as the SUV pulled over with the cop behind him. He was probably thinking why me and not the nice new camaro?

I saw another person pulled over with a marked car.

Tonight read the paper that the cops were out that morning in force looking not so much for speeders but agressive drivers doing stupid things.

Paper said in 3 hours they gave out 60 tickets!

I was lucky.

Driving fast is one thing, driving aggresive and stupid is quite another.

I don't know if it was the weather or what, but yesterday here in RI, people were being total jerks. All sorts of aggressive and stupid driving on the highways.

Rte 3 is a well known "highly patrolled" highway. I never go more than 5 mph over on that road and people will fly by doing 75-80.....invariably you see them stopped a mile or so down the road waiting for their ticket.

Route 3 is notorious. I drive Rte 3N from 128 every morning and Rte 3S to 128 every afternoon and the State Troopers are everywhere!!! I keep it under impulse power.

I wasn't behind you, but I just got bagged a few days ago in the wife's SUV there; $100 ticket.
I was not driving aggressive.
I had cruise on at 65 in the right lane and someone was coming up the ramp. I sped up to 72 to give him space, there was a cruiser 3 cars behind me.

Wow that sucks. Sorry to hear that. 72 is actually slow for that section of road everyone blows by you at 80.

72 is a $100 ticket? I've been pulled over for doing more though they reduced them all to 10 over, and those were like $80.

I know where all the cops like to sit on my way to work, though since my vacation I haven't seen many (maybe 1 a day). Before I was seeing like 7 a day.

Actually, I think this is ticket number 32 or 33.
Probably twice as many warnings.
Honesty usually gets it lowered or a warning.
Win some, lose some.
