Just act like a normal person when cops are tailing you, you'll look less suspicious. You think they don't know you're going five miles under the speed limit because they're behind you?

I personally find it extremely annoying when cops tail you. I hate when anyone tails me, but it's like they're just trying to get me to make a mistake so they can pull me over.

To make OP feel better, I got my first ticket today for going 13 over on my way to classes (rushing).

2, I actually saw a guy get pulled over for that last week. He was driving ten under in the passing lane because there was a cop behind him. The officer finally got fed up with his slow speed while people consistently passed them in the right lane and flipped his lights on. The cop ended up busting the guy with a bunch of drugs too.

Why does everyone seem to think any cop car driving behind them is automatically "tailing" them? Please correct me if this is really a synonym (not my first language), but I'm under the impression that tailing is more in the sense of purposely following a specific person rather than coincidentally driving behind the same person for a while. Cops have places to go to too, and they use the same streets as everyone else, so probability says that occasionally they'll end up behind your car. Act normal, just don't go much too fast, and everything will be fine. They are most likely not out to get you, so if you don't act stupid they will leave you alone.

@36 You are correct but that's not provable until after the situation is over, more than likely it is as showing themselves gives the game away if they really were tailing.

There is actually a rule on the road . Far left lane is as you probably know is for passing. If you are going slower then the car next to you should probably get over. But over kill though for a ticket. But the rule has to be enforced some how I guess.

36: I was just thinking the same thing. Yes, I get paranoid when a cop is behind me, but that does not mean they are waiting for me to do something wrong (Although, some may me total jerks & do tail people for fun). 43: it's really more of a common curtesy thing than a law & not a real reason to pull someone over for driving slower in the left lane. The husband of the couple I babysit for is a cop & I ask him driving questions the time.

@36 - It can be either, but it's more commonly used in the way you described. If you look up the definition in the Oxford Dictionary, one of them is simply "follow".

Not a good idea necessarily. There is a chance they will pull you over just because of that. The situation of someone pulled over with hazards on tends to get cops to pull over to help or see what's going on. I've had that happen 4-5 times with hazard lights on under different circumstances. Even cops coming out of nowhere when we were just there naturally.

Not really. For some reason, I just worry anytime a cop is near me. Like I feel like I just robbed a liquor store or something even when I didn't do anything wrong. Maybe I'm just a paranoid weirdo. I don't know. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Not necessarily... I got pulled over for running an "imaginary" stop sign (the road is approximately a 10 mile straight shot). I'm a a Muslim Arab-American that drives black 96 Cadillac Eldorado with a license plate that says NYMBUS. It doesn't get more conspicuous than that, apparently, because I get pulled over very regularly.

I was put in the opposite situation as OP's. To avoid a bad pothole, I drove around it. Since it was at 10 pm on a Saturday night, the cop pulled me over and asked if I had been drinking. Sometimes you can't win OP.

But they make you do stupid shit before a breathalyzer. I got pulled over and he asked me to recite the alphabet backwards from s without singing . What the hell is that ... I couldn't do that on a good day more less under scrutiny.

I love that police in Australia don't do that stupid sobriety test. "now if I could get you to do the alphabet backwards for me, please" "alright officer, arrest me now"

Tell him to fuck off then shoot him with a rocket launcher.

Worrying about a cop behind you when you're not doing anything illegal is pointless. But I'm sure you probably took a breathalyzer test and they realized you weren't actually intoxicated.

You should be good, why'd he arrest you without proof anyways?

When a cop follows me. I pull over without his lights on. Shut my truck off. If he asks why I pulled over, tell him I needed to make a phone call. Gets him off your ass. Aint letting him follow me for miles and look for a reason to ticket me
