Stopped by a Maine State Trooper today
Apparently I was doing 72 in a 55 today. I was on a rural road pretty much in the middle of nowhere. A lot of Maine is like that though.
Car was turned off, window down and hands go up on steering wheel with thumbs locked. He walks up and says how are you today. I said first things first. I am armed and I do have a permit. He says thank you for telling me. A lot of people do not. I handed him my DL, permit and other paperwork.
I told him I wasn't in a hurry and had no excuse for speeding but it was just hard to do 55 on that road. He then asked me if it was in the vehicle or on my body. I said it was on me. He said ok and walked back to his cruiser.
Less then 5 minutes later he comes back and says I'll save you 178 dollars if you promise to keep it closer to 55. I said deal. Just a verbal warning and I was on my way. :smile:
