    Me too. Was in New Zealand. Had it been the UK he'd have made out it was my fault etc assuming he bothered to pull over..

    I'm assuming you're a troll. And foglights? Why? They make you look like an idiot. As does stupidly loud music.

    I've never been stopped by the police. They always follow me, doing PNC checks I guess - but my vehicles don't exactly look roadworthy. :rolleyes:
    i didnt say stupidly loud music. loud music

    Just been stopped 20 mins ago coming bakc frm a night out. I wasnt driving but was in the passenger seat and we got followed by trafpol for 2 miles from town centre and eventually stopped with the policeman claiming we were going too slow. He said we were doing 23mph in the 30. The speedo said 30 and I doubt its 7mph out at that speed.
    Thats the second time I'vee been pulled in someone else's car in 3-4 years. I have never been stopped apart from once on a pushbike.

    Shortly after my brother turned 16 and got his bike and we were around the town (Me in front in the car, him on the bike behind) late at night and we got pulled for a chat and to ask our intensions for riding around at night, explained my brother had just turned 16 and they Police man was a sound guy who was into bikes himself and took a quick look at my brothers bike to check everything was good and sent us on.

    Next time was for an alleged, approximated 40 in a 30MPH at 2:00am a night, but that was just a warning..

    Stopped various other times as my car attracts quite a bit of attention from them, more-so when I had my 'R' plates, just routine checks from the Police in known cruising spots nothing out of the normal.

    And I predict it wont be long before I'm stopped because of my newly fitted 10,000k HID Lights. Oh well!

    I haven't but I've done the "Forgot to put headlights on" thing a few times (all within a month of passing my test). Worst thing was the people overtaking me, all flashing their fullbeams at me, and I couldn't get what they meant.

    God, I'm thick sometimes...

    I had a police guy pull me over at 2am asking my intentions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Was a late work night and felt like a drive. Went through town on teh way back and got pulled.

    I just said I know it is not illegal to drive at 2am so I am not even going to bother answering such a ridiculous question.

    He happily went on his way wherever , what a twunt.

    I got pulled over about a month ago, as they thought I looked too young to be driving :rolleyes:
    Suppose it was fair enough, as I do look young for my age.

    Stopped three times.

    Once after driving home from my girlfriends in my first car(Little red 106) because you dont normaly see cars like that on this road, how rude?

    Second time they thought i was someone else speeding in the same colour car, they followed me all the way home, only for me to tell them it wasnt me.

    Last was just a random stop, they asked me if i had been drinking, i told them one glass of wine, and they just sent me on my way!

    This is all in less than 9 months !

    My friend got stopped one evening. It was about 1045 at night and we had just finished performing a show, she was about 5 mins away from her house and got pulled by the cops 'did you realise you were swerving your car slightly?' she had her little sis in the car and said if you need to talk you can follow me to my house but i have to get her home first.... they drove off

    i ride bikes in groups and we usually get stopped for a chat about road safety, road accidents etc...

    pulled over for riding normally in north wales, the police there are instructed to pull bikers over for the sake of it due to some bike hating police commissioner there

    was followed in a group for miles by a police undercover rider, told off for wearing a dark visor, complemented our riding, didn't care about loud exhausts, he had a dribble over some of the bikes the other guys were riding let us go

    pulled over by myself on the way home from london when it was dark and given a lecture about hi vis.

    pulled over driving my dads car as i looked 'suspicious', more like the panda car jobs-worth was jealous, everything checked out and i was on my way.

    Yes, in my Austin Seven. They thought I'd nicked it. Idiots.

    As I pointed out, if I nicked a car, I wouldn't be stupid enough to nick something so obvious and drive it around town AND it's not likely that your average young car thief would be able to drive it anyway!

    The really stupid thing was that not only is the car registered in my name, but I am also the policy holder on the insurance.

    They didn't apologise, either.
