Trying to outrun the cops after speeding and running a yellow/red light. I had a 1984 Mercury Cougar wiht a 118hp V6. Not a good idea.
They got me, made me waste 20 minutes of my time, then let me go with a verbal warning. I never understood why, I got costly tickets for a lot less than that.
theres more here.............spill!
I was driving on the highway on my way to a strip mall (if that's what you want to call it) with some friends. My car was a '95 G20, and if any of you know what that is, you know it's a pretty low car, but actually not much lower than any corolla, civic, etc.
So I was in the right lane as my exit was coming up and there was this crazy lifted truck slowly coming up behind me with HARD headlights blinding me like crazy through all my mirrors and basically any reflective surface that was in any way aimed rearwards. It was legitimately dangerous, and I can't stand people like this.
I take my exit, and he happens to be taking the same exit. At the first stop, he ends up right next to me and I (being 17) flipped him off, although at the time I doubt he saw me because his truck was about 3 times the height of my car, and I was wearing pretty dark gloves. I couldn't see his face. He drives off.
I park my car in the middle of this huge parking lot (there were plenty of other cars, but it was pretty late and cold and everyone was indoors pretty much, there was no one around). We chill out in my car for a few minutes while we are deciding what to do, and then we decide to get out and use the washroom at the nearby movie theater. Once we are on the sidewalk, Mr. lifted F250 creeps up on us from behind (after what I'm guessing was 10 minutes of driving around this parking lot looking for us).
The guy rolls down his window, I can barely hear what he is saying over his diesel V8.
Guy: Why did you give me the finger?
Me: What?? *put my hand on my ear*
Guy: Why did you give me the finger??
Me: Your brights were on the whole way down the highway back there, you were blinding half the city.
Guy: NO I WASN'T, IT'S NOT MY FAULT YOUR CAR IS LOW (blah blah, French Canadian rage)
Me: Dude, you are supposed to tilt down your headlights when you lift your truck that much, it's the law. My car isn't that low, and even if it was, I still shouldn't have been being blinded by your heads.
Guy: Yeah?! Yeah?! Well *as if he is about to start a 4-1 fight*, you better watch who you flip off, bro. (he repeats this about 3 times)
Me: *Me realizing this is pointless* Whatever man...
He drives off, and he stuck around the area for a while before getting lost.
After he leaves, my friend who was standing a dozen feet away pointed out that the guy had this slutty looking girl in the pass. and he was probably just trying to look manly.
TL;DR Flipped off a truck for blinding me with his headlights. Guy got pissed and then drove off.
I have other stories but I can't seem to remember them ATM.
