In your opinion, how is someone else speeding their fault? It's not like he was in the same car as his father and knew that he would be speeding, and I'm guessing that he assumed that his father who had been driving for years would know and obey traffic laws. It's not OP's fault at all, no matter how you look at it. Unless you're expecting him to be a know all mind reader.

A mind reader, or someone that glances at the speedometer from time to time, especially if they suspect they might be speeding and are training to be an officer of the law.

The way i read it he WAS in the same car since he had to do push ups. i myself will tell people to slow down if were going too fast and im far from a cop, id expect a cop-in-training would do the same. You wouldnt want to fine your own dad right? And no i dont expect him to be a mind reader. it was just my opinion and you cant change that. i was expecting a cop to be more aware.

Probably not, especially considering the small character limit for posts. I know pretty much everyone in my family would ignore me if I asked them to slow down, so it's hardly the OP's fault. I admit I don't know anything about police training, but I'm going to assume that if you're still learning to be a cop then you can't issue tickets yet, so there is nothing the OP could have done short of grabbing the wheel and forcing the dad to slow down. It may be your opinion, but it's most likely wrong.

1: thats your family, 2: i never said cops in training can issue tickets i just said it would be awkward to give your dad one, 3: fuck you you cant judge my opinion. i never said my opinion was law just that its what i thought. now go fuck yourself. some familys actually listen unlike yours.

I know if i was giving someone a ride and they told me to slow down, if i was only going 5 or 10 over i would tell them to deal with it. Hell, even some cops give you a little cusion like that. And kerstoleann- calm down, its FML, no reason to attack someones family.

@36: If I were a police officer in training, telling you to slow down and you would have told me to deal with it, I would have written you the ticket myself. Would you tell any other police officer to 'deal with it'? Why do you expect preferential treatment, just because he/she is your friend?

Drill instructors are crazy like that, especially if he's ex-military. Mass punishment was a staple of the army, and I'm guessing other branches are similar.

It goes like this, you are in a vehicle that is speeding, you are allowing an illegal act to happen, you as a cadet are held to a higher standard. It's on you. Sucks but it's academy life haha
