Today, I was pulled over for speeding. I speak 4 languages and thought if I spoke French, the Officer would let me off with a warning thinking I was a tourist. Afterwards I turned to my wife and said "I can't believe that worked." He was a few feet away and heard. FML

Time to state the obvious: should have waited until he was IN his car. YDI, son. :/

ALMOST got away with it, would have been awesome!

something i would totally do on accident.

Haha me 2 but you (OP) totally deserve that 1. At least make sure he was in his car!

Smoooooth move, dude. Better luck next time. YDI.

Seriously. I got pulled over driving in USA (i'm a foreigner) and did my best to speak loud and clear english. Gave him the excuse that I came from a metric system country and was confused by the imperial units. Didn't work though.

it doesn't matter who you are, you shouldn't be speeding anyway

I don't believe this. Wouldn't he have known you weren't when he looked at your driver licence?

Yeah, or his license plate.

Just because you have a American license does not, by any stretch of the imagination, mean that you speak a bit of English

But he was pretending to be a tourist, not to speak no English. How many tourists have American licenses.

friend visiting from a different country borrowing a car?
