I'd like to believe this is because I was courteous in the way I passed on the right only after giving the guy a chance, and the cop was waiting for a jerk. But I think it may just have been because the guy behind me got between the cop and me, and got unlucky.
I'm not even sure I saw what happened behind me right; the cop may have been following that other car for longer than that, or something like that. Who knows?
I've got delusions of good karma, I guess. :) Anyone know any state troopers? It'd be interesting to know more about how they pick which speeder to pull over... (And that's just curiosity speaking, though I'd probably end up using it for evil... though if courteousness gets you some slack, I think that would be a fine policy on their part, and conducive to my current driving patterns) (if you really believe passing on the right after giving the guy a long chance to move over is courteous).
Yep. Delusional. But it's a mass delusion, of which I am but one subject.
