Default Not a Kill.....But a couple of close calls!

I was crusing down the highway racing a punk in something or another, think an G20, and when i passed the guy i kept on crusing at 90, when all of a sudden i see a State Cop on the side of the road....I just let off the gas and he stayed put right on the side of the road.....

Another good one was on 195 in RI.....I flew past a state trooper in a 55 zone doing 90.....He had his radar gun out and was looking for a good ticket.....For some reason he just stayed parked and waiting for a good catch....I don't know if he didn't see me or just let me go, but the bonnys are GREAT sleepers!

I've done this a few times in my Bonne as well. I've just cruised thru more speed traps undetected than anyone else I know. It'* like the car is invisible to radar or something.

I got passed by two state troopers (no lights) once who were doing over 110mph. I got go some dirty looks when they passed because I was doing 95mph myself. Either way, they had something more important to do than to bust me, thank god.

Bonnevilles have to be one of the best sleepers ever made!!!

I can testify to these! This morning, around 5:45, I was ripping up the road at 85-90 on a really good 4 lane in my area, when I spotted the state trooper sitting dark in the median. Since there seemd to be no way for me to get out of this one, I immediately dropped the trans into 2nd instead of breaking. A Furd Lightning came zooming past just as I reached 50mph AND the stateycame over the hill for me. He pulled the truck over instead of me! I could believe it! I thought it was going to be a reckless for me, but I got lucky. 4 doors every time!
