If a repost, still funny enough to see it again.
Doubtful if true, still funny enough to visualize it in your mind.
Wyoming State Police Story - Gotta love it.
In most of the northern states, there is a policy of checking on
any stalled vehicle on the highway when the temperatures drop down
to single digits or below.
About 3 AM, one very cold morning, a state police officer
responded to a call there was a car off the shoulder of the road
outside Casper . He located the car, stuck in deep snow, and with
the engine still running. Pulling in behind the car with his emergency
lights on, the officer walked to the driver's door to find an
older man passed out behind the wheel with a nearly empty vodka bottle
on the seat beside him.
The driver came awake when the officer tapped on the window.
Seeing the rotating lights in his rearview mirror, and the state
policeman standing next to his car, the man panicked.
He jerked the gearshift into 'drive' and hit the gas. The car's
speedometer was showing 20-30-40 and then 50 mph, but it was still
stuck in the snow, wheels spinning.
The policeman, having a sense of humor, began running in place
next to the speeding, but still stationary car. The driver was
totally freaked, thinking the officer was actually keeping up with him.
This goes on for about 30 seconds, then the officer yelled at the man
to 'Pull over!'
The man obeyed, turned his wheel and stopped the engine.
Needless to say, the man from Casper was arrested, and is probably
still shaking his head over the state patrolman who could run 50
miles per hour.
Who says policemen don't have a sense of humor?Facta non verba

I could see it happening. I was driving big truck a while back and got pretty tired. I pulled over in an empty truck lot and put my head against the steering wheel with the intent of dozing for just a few minutes. I woke up and right in front of me is another big truck coming right for me. I hit the brakes, jerked the steering wheel around and generally panicked. I thought I was still driving and had fallen asleep at the wheel. The other truck was backing up.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
