Headlight Out

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
So, my car headlight just went out yesterday, before my adventure to Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando. So my plan all along was to replace my headlight today not at 7 p.m. last night.  However, I knew how police worked, and I new that I had a great chance of getting pulled over.

Turns out, I was correct.  Just as we concluded our night at about 1030, after eating at Sonic, we got pulled over by Orange County police.  He pulled me over on I-drive.  Moments later, before he got to my window, another squad car showed up for backup.  So, at this point, I am in a hotel parking lot, with 2 police cars behind me with both of their squad lights on.  Talk about creating a scene.  

The officer told me he pulled me over because "you were going too fast for this road" and "your headlight is out."  Literally seconds before pulling me over, a van screamed by me at least 10-15 mph faster than me.  The officer had to have noticed, because the van just finished passing me when the police lights turned on behind me.  

So, I was profiled because we had 3 younger people in the car on I-Drive with a headlight out.  Jimmy and I had both looked at my speed, and I was actually going 35, the speed limit for that road.

The officer never told me my speed.  Nor did I get a ticket.
