Marianne: Stop In The Name Of The Law

Bill was craving a brick-oven pizza from the Loading Dock downtown, and since I was doing some errands, I drove on toward town from Wal-Mart to get it. Looking down at my speedometer, between Yoke’s and Co-Op, I noticed 50 mph and immediately slowed down but not before the Ponderay cop saw me too. She wheeled around in the highway and proceeded to follow me with no light. She didn’t really need to flash it cuz I knew I’d been had. I pulled into the nearest wide spot just past the Y and on went the lights. It’s been a long time since I’ve been stopped, so I did okay with the driver’s license but stress set in when she asked for the registration and proof of insurance. I hadn’t opened that glove compartment for months, and I remember the last cop stop when I kept handing the officer my Les Schwab envelopes/Marianne Love, Slight Detour. More here (scroll down)

Question: When were you last pulled over by a patrol officer? Did you get a ticket?
