    Talking Excuses......

    What is it with people making excuses to get out of a cite or an arrest? What kind of excuses have you heard and to the non-LEO's, please explain to me why civies would think this would get them off?!?!?!?

    E.G.:

    1)"I just got new tires."
    2)"I just bought this."
    3)"It's not mine and I'm not used to it."
    4)"I didn't see the sign."
    5)"My kids were acting up."
    6)"I was trying to keep up with the other traffic."
    7)"I heard that you guys don't even stop people unless they are going at least ten over."
    8)"I was trying to get to that gas station to pee!"
    9)"My daughter just fell and broke her arm. I need to get to the Hospital!"
    10)"I'm breast feeding and she bit my nipple. That's why I swerved."
    and on.........and...........on... ........and....on.......please contribute with yours.

    I plan on saying "but the sign back there said 95 and 495, and I figured I'd take the lower number to be safe!"

    The reason they try those lines? Because they've never hung out with a cop or bunch of cops telling war stories.

    By the time I got my license I knew enough cops to know just to shut-up and own up to what I did and I had a chance. Oh, and to memorize my DL number in case I never had it on me.

    Sometimes this excuse is indeed valid. Especially with people who suffer from IBS. In the movie "Along Came Polly", IBS is not just some fake disease they made up for the movie plot.

    Don't be surprised to sooner or later when you walk back to a car after wrtiting a ticket and you're knocked down by the smell.

    I used to keep IBS, headaches and heartburn all the time before I retired from law enforcement.

    "This is MY car. I don't need a license to drive my own car!"

    Seriously, an idiot told me that.

    Hmmmmm.

    We had a guy say..."it's my car, and if I say my 13 year can drive it, then he can!"

    Ironic, as it happened about a week after 3 juvies flew into a tree while joy riding - the youngest was 9, and he was the younger brother of the 14 year old driver.

    The 9 year old was decapitated.

    My favorite is I didnt have time to stop before it turned red. Like it goes straight from green to red. If you pay attention you always have time to stop.

    The one I hear all the time from people I stop for speeding is "I'm not from around here." I just tell them the speed limit is posted all the way down the street.

    Oh! I also had a guy call to complain about the ticket he got for going thru a stop sign. His reasoning was, 2 years ago - when he lived there - there was no stop sign at that corner! Shouldn't we have to paint a warning on the road or something?

    While that wasn't exactly what they said... They got a break for it.

    Another one got a break when they admitted running the stop sign. They were the first one all day that didn't argue, and just fessed up.

    But the "I'm not from around here..." ranks up with "I'm lost." Why do they think this excuses speeding? If they're not from around here...shouldn't they be paying MORE attention to the signs? And if they're lost...how is driving FASTER going to help them get un-lost?
