    Default got pulled doing 90 in a 40

    I got pulled over by an unmarked vectra at approx 4.15 in the morning after he was almost tail gating me i believe / was keeping right on my tail no matter how fast i was moving which took me to 90 in a 40 he told me .
    I would never do that on a b road, i was kind of worried that time of morning.
    My heart came out of my mouth when the siren came on and the blue lights were flashing. i pulled over and got out and was going to have a right go before throwing my keys because i would have lost my job lost my home lost my car everything .
    Any way respect to the copper he gave me a good talking to after telling me shut up and listen and let me off.
    I had to sit there a few minutes to realise how lucky i was and did that just happen.
    I tell you what i wont be speeding again no matter what, i have had a second chance

    In this day and age you can't afford to slow down and let them pass! At 4am if a car came wanging up behind me I'd be offski aswell. As long as you pull in when you realise it is the police I think thats fair play but I personally would not hang around to see if the car is full of scumbags intent on robbing/car jacking me or not. IMHO of course.....

    So what speed do you get up to before you let them pass? - if someone comes up fast behind me I just assume they're in a hurry, not 'out to get me'

    Don't know how you got away with it. Twice over the speed limit always = instant ban.
    I know (nearly) all of us have been guilty of speeding to some degree, but 90 in 40.... that's crazy stuff :/

    if you find they are still following you you try to find some where safe like a police station, petrol station where cctv are.
