So, Diann & I were driving to Houston yesterday via the typical route (South Hwy 6. to 290 East for those of you curious) and we were cruising at about 70-72 MPH. Speed limit was 65 MPH and everyone in the pack of cars around us was doing the same speed as we were.

So, we're driving through Prarie View, and a cop in the center media turns on his lights and honks his horn at me, so I go to pull over, and he pulls in beside me.

Here's the transcript that follows:

Cop: “Reason I pulled you over is because I clocked you at 84.”

Me: “Umm, I was going 70-72 along with everyone else.”

Cop: “Then why'd you pull over?”

Me: “Umm, maybe because you had your lights on and were honking your horn at me?”

Cop: “Can I see your license and proof of insurance, please?”

Me: (hands it over)

Cop: “Well, I'm gonna let you go with a warning today.”

WTF? Either his radar detector was way out of whack, or he's just harassing people. It's fairly obvious he didn't actually clock me at 84 or I definitely would've gotten a ticket.
