Cop Tailgates Left Lane Driver, Tickets Her For Not Speeding

Chris | InformationLiberation

Via do you cope when you're doing the speed limit in the left lane and the tailgater is a cop?

That was the dilemma facing Dave Ballou's daughter on a trip from her Wyckoff home to college on the New Jersey Turnpike. A state trooper stayed less than a dozen feet from her bumper, according to Dave, while the 20-year-old maintained the 65-mph speed limit.

Why didn't she move to the middle lane?

"There was a tractor-trailer truck right next to her, and she didn't know what to do," dad explained. "Instead of passing the truck and risking a speeding ticket or [signaling] and slowing down to move behind the truck she maintained her speed, thinking this was OK."

It wasn't. The trooper pulled her over and issued a summons for failing to keep right. The cop wasn't interested in her fear of moving to the right. And he sure didn't want to hear complaints about his own driving.

"Too bad," he told her, noting that he gave her "three miles" to find a way to yield.
Note, the cop was breaking the law and actively endangering lives by tailgating the driver, but of course he has a badge and a gun so he doesn't have to follow the law.

20761 Slam on brakes is great advice. That'll teach not to tailgate.
But I'm glad the cop wrote the ticket...left lane is for PASSING; wish more cops would write tickets for failing to pass or yield. I consider that a service to greater society - not a burden. Note that the posted speed is a MAXIMUM speed; if too scared to speed up to pass, driver can slow down and then go to the right lane. That = No laws broken and everyone is happy.

71230 How stupid & self contradictory!
If the posted speed is the Max allowed then you are not allowed or should ever be expected to exceed it to pass (if you are currently doing the Max as in the story). Also, the person behind you, tailgaiting or not, is not allowed to go any faster than they were when keeping pace wth you at the Max. So, no reason at all to do anything different than the girl in the story. Cop is a brain dead freak just as the above commenter.

98169 @ 20761:

"left lane is for PASSING"

Yes, you try that with cars around you and get into an accident. Be my guest. You do NOT merge over if it endangers others or yourself, ever. How's about you give that a go, merge over and get into a wreck, cause getting out of the Left Lane is the most important thing 'evah.

And it is against the law to speed up just to merge into another lane.

98169 And @ 71246:

You never, EVER, get over if doing so will cause an accident. Unless getting out of the Left Lane is more important than life itself.

10855 Same has happened to me and two of my daughters in last year in different NY and PA towns. They want your money and do not care if they force an otherwise law abiding citizen to take actions they would not have to avoid a dangerous situation. They know all about fight or flight reactions and use it to their advantage. To every cop who comments just get over, BS. There are other cars preventing it for happening, or no way to do so in single lane situations and with cop so tight on back of car an experienced driver knows he will be struck if attempted.

It is a dangerous game that they play to extort money form those who would otherwise be following the law. No two ways about it - Serve and Protect - not endanger and extort you freaking self important scum.
