    I'm car #2 in the slow lane. He pulls along side of me, I'm hoping he is just passing - instead, he motions me to pull over. I slow down and hug the shoulder. Sheriff passes me and pulls alongside SVT #1, now in the slow lane (probably laughing at me) and the gives him the same order. Sheriff then pulls in front of SVT #1 until he sees we are both stopping. I had an Escort, buddy had the V1, neither went off. He estimated 75/55 & wrote tickets. We didn't argue at all.

    Around the same time, there was a (now urban legend) email going around that basically said, when you get a ticket, overpay it. The court would have to issue a refund check for the overpaid amount. Email went on to say DONT cash the refund, throw it away, because IF you cash it, the ticket "transaction" is completed in the ticket databases, and insurance and drivers license points "find out" about your speeding problems. Whatever the email said, it sounded logical enough, so I overpaid by check $2.00. A few weeks later, I get a receipt in the mail. The computer-printed fine was crossed out and replaced with a handwritten fine amount.... $2.00 higher, and a handwritten "Thank you!!" with a big smiley face.

      . That does sound logical. And i imagine that probably worked earlier on. But they caught on to it. Hence the smiley face.
