So today I did a no no. I was going about 6 mph over speed limit on the last 2 days of the month sigh.....
Police officer in a GA city I was driving through blue lighted me. He was just doing his job. Said they are enforcing hard today and there are no exceptions. I respected his job and I after all I guess I gave a reason to pull me over. I guess he was in his middle '20s
Anyways...He walked up to my window, the usual, how you doing etc... I was like fantastic and you ? He responded in kind. Told me why he pulled me over, I acknowledged smiling kindly.
He asked me for registration. I keep it in the Center Console, where I store my firearm while driving. I cant stand it digging into my side while driving. Before I opened the center console I told him I have a loaded firearm in my center console and I was going to remove it and place my weapon on my dashboard to access my registration. He said thanks for letting me know and please dont worry about it.
So I got my registration and he did his warrant check etc... no biggie. Of course came back clean. He gave me a ridiculously reduced citation for being kind and nice and for letting him know I was armed, which by the way is not required in the state of GA.
All in all a good encounter with no issues. He didn't even ask to see the firearm once I told him about it.
Of course I still have like a $45.00 or so fine haha but I'm not above the law.
