Was I with Foul? No. You can easily see I was not. If I were, he would have been pulled over, and we would have both gotten 1 phone call.

What Do I do when they're behind me? I pull over, because they are normally behind with the lights on. If the lights arent on, and I can get them to not follow me, I will. Last time I had one really following me. I went into walmart parking lot, he parked next to me. I went in, got some $, then walked to DQ 45 min and 4 grape slushies later he gave up and left.

Depends on the car you're driving too. A Mercury Grand Marquis won't get followed too much but if you're driving a mustang, bmw, ect on a friday night, I'm sure you might be one to get followed to see if you panic or swerve. Cops aren't stupid, they were young once too, they know what scenerio's to look for.

Cessna, that's my point. Why was I nervous?? I guess it's because I've never been pulled over and NOT been given a ticket. They have all been for speeding though.

Paranoya will destroy ya! That's a song.....who sang it???

If you are not doing anything wrong, and you know it, than give em the finger than step on it and see if they can catch you!!
Unless its Troutly, than you pull over and give him a BIG KISS!

I've heard of the 'Don't Stop Rule', but never the No Run Rule. LOL

Several years ago,I was followed by local cop car for about ten minutes,when the lights flashed and I stopped.Nevertheless, I had about eight cop cars come to the seen where I stopped,they made me pull my hands out of the car and stay put.It was late a night and I new this was not a dream,I was freaking out having about six hand guns approach my car.They finally got me out of the car in saying turn around MTF you stoled this car, I said what,I just baught this car less than month ago.In closing,someone took my temporary tag from my corvette and slap the stolen vehicles tag on there.Thank god I was sober and was able to tell them that the stolen tag doesnt match my vehicle.

Cessna, The No Run Rule is when we instruct individuals on why you dont run. In essence, no running from the police. Or get punished.

Mypantera, That had to really suck. I know we run into some f'd up situations out there and sometimes innocent people get cought up in it. Glad it worked out well and you did exactly like you were instructed. May all you other encounters be of a more positive note.
