I’m going to go with clean living, upstanding citizenship and being a local who lives down the street from the station.

Basically got popped this morning for 55 in a 35 on the way to work. While I don’t dispute I was going over 35, I still don’t think I got near 55. It was 4:30am when they lit up the lights behind me. Pulled over, answered the “do you know the speed limit”, “where do you live”, “where are you going” questions. Cop took my license, came back and said “slow it down for us, get to work safe.” and that was that.

I didn’t even have to bust out a “how about a warning this time?”.

It would have been only my second speeding ticket. The first I was insanely proud off, still am, but got way back in college.
