Speeding!

So, in a new experience for me, 30 seconds after leaving work today, I got pulled over for speeding by a nice police lady :-( 40 in a 30 zone, which is fair enough, I'm usually really good about not speeding in the low zones, and I really hadn't realised that it was 30. Not sure why it took 2 cars to corral me in - perhaps I looked scary or something.

I ended up having a conversation with a cop in the second car (while the cop in the first car wrote up the ticket) about New Zealand and his trip there in two weeks. Guess it's true, Kiwis can make friends anywhere these days.

So traffic school for me. In a weird way, I'm looking forward to it. It feels like one of those things that everyone has to go through. I may not be feeling this way at hour two.

Damn, there is no speeding mood! We'll go with rushed.

ETA: Am now kicking myself that I didn't take the offer to sit inside the police car and ogle all the tech though.

Two posts in two days! You should get pulled over for speeding more often...

Two cars and pulling you over for 40 in a 30 zone suggests to me they're doing a safety drive (excuse the pun). You were just unlucky enough that there weren't other cars they could pull over right then.

How long, and when is, traffic school?

I know - I'm in a chatty mood. Also, I'm now treating LJ like twitter, rather than making it into a big deal that I post. Which means instead of one post every year, it may be as much as one a month.

Apparently traffic school is between 2 and 4 hours. I guess it depends on how stupid we all are. No times yet, I may have to take a day off work. I don't think I'll tell them why though.
