How Commenting On Jalopnik Got Me Out Of A Speeding Ticket

So guys, I get pulled over this morning on my way to work. I’m doing about 102 in a 65 zone. As soon as I saw the trooper, I see that he is beginning to put the cruiser in drive... SHIT!!! So I pull over and get my info ready. He comes up and gives the usual “Do you know how fast you were going?” I told him I wasn’t really looking but I’m sorry. He asked me a weird question...

Cop: “Are you dc8822?”

Me: “What?”

Cop: “Are you dc8822, you know, Owns an AP1 S2000, now wants a Terminator Mustang?”


Me: “Ummmm.... Yes. Are you a jalop?”

Cop: “Oh ya. It’s my homepage in the cruiser.”

I couldn’t believe it. I’m not going to let his handle go in case he wouldn’t want me to, but he let me go. Jalops are awesome. I love this place and it just goes to show that even a small chat area on a random website can create the feeling of community. We talked for like an hour. I was late to work just because I bull shitted with him for so long. Anyway, thought you guys would think it’s funny.
