Feeling Lucky

This morning on my way to work I got pulled over.

First time ever.


I merge from one main road (the Hutch) on to a service road (Westchester Ave.) and then have to cut across two lanes of traffic to get on to another main road (287). It is a tough merge. Since our office move it is the path of least resistance to the new digs. It usually works out great if you speed up - except when you cut off a cop to do it.

Fortunately, I had a nice, attractive young cop who could tell I was a bit unnerved. I have never been pulled over before. I had a tough time identifying my registration (it was in the car, I just wasn't sure what it looked like).

He took my documents and returned to his car. And I waited. And then he brought my back my items, told me to be careful, and let me off with a warning.

From now on I will be the reallllllly cautious driver at every merge. You don't have to tell me twice.

So you're gonna be like the little old lady who inches in and causes accidents by slowing everyone down? Excellent. Glad I don't commute behind you.
