I thought I was caught.
As you know from yesterday, I am not a speeder. I’ve received my fair share of speeding tickets in my life, and I don’t want to receive any more. I rarely drive faster than 5 mph over the limit, which is the bane of existence for my lovely wife.
Last week, though, I thought I was going to get lit up, because a police vehicle had suddenly changed lanes directly behind me. I wasn’t speeding, but I was towing a trailer that had an expired registration and non-functional lights. I thought I was had. But then the “police vehicle” changed lanes again and passed me.
It turns out the Ford Explorer wasn’t a police vehicle at all—it was just an Explorer.
Who would’ve guessed that a family SUV would become the new face of police cars?
