I had just got done with a delivery and was on my way home. I was speaking to an ultrasound tech on the cell. I guess I was a little faster then I should have been.

LEO: Hello

ARDOCs dome light is on and hands are on the wheel. Paperwork including CCW is out for LEO to see.

ARDOC: Hello, Officer, I apologize but I was speaking with the hospital and didnt realize how fast I was going.

LEO: Oh, you work at the hospital?

ARDOC: Yes, just delivered a baby.

LEO: Have a nice night and slow down.

ARDOC: Thank you Officer.

NO TICKET, called my antiauthoritarian buddy who always gets a ticket to rub it in.

60 in a 40 by the way.

I've heard from some LEOs that they almost never give Dr's a ticket, unless they're doing something really stupid.

Is ARDOC's dog okay?

Glad it all turned out okay.

Officer was very polite and professional. No dogs were shot and ARDOC dodged another one.

nicely done, and even your dog made it out ok!

They will sometimes call the hospital to make sure you are on a call or have a legitimate excuse. Its funny because the nurses will cover for you if the LEOs call. They will say you have a lady in labor.

But the truth and respectfulness will set you free.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:08:10 PM EST
Yeah, I've had a habit of not writing Docs and Nurses unless they are doing something REALLY ridiculous. I think it just comes back to the whole idea that I (or a buddy of mine) might be laying on that table in an emergency and I don't want the Doc pissed off at cops because he got a ticket that night or something.

Very cool, DOC...just the way it should have turned out.

I won't believe you.

I extend courtesy to doctors/nurses/emts also, provided they don't give me no lip. Heck, all of my traffic stops start off as warnings. It's amazing how some drivers will talk themselves into a ticket or two.

On a related note:

I used to do alot of work for the Modesto, CA PD (computer stuff). Now and then as I was wandering around the building, an officer would stop me and ask me what I was doing. I used to explain in detail why I was there, what I was doing, who authorized me, etc. It got old after a while, so I stretched the truth a little:

"I'm working on the servers that handle payroll."
"Have a nice day sir."

I tried that once way back years ago. It worked great for a couple of minutes, but I think the "being falling down drunk" part kind of gave it away.

It's been popular around a few departments.

International Imports in California. I bought two, since they're REALLY difficult to find.

Yep. I had an ER nurse tell me she hoped I got shot and brought into her ER after i arrested her son for stealing a cancer patients IPOD and Rx meds.

I reported her to the California board of nursing.

That's the way I approach being pulled over. I try to assume Im getting a warning unless I give a reason to be punished severely....

Had a fellow resident get off twice while I was at Cook Co. She was moving a bit fast. Told the officer she had been called in...(true in one case, not in the other). He asked where, and she said "Cook". Officer told her to be careful.

Not the most pleasant place to work, but it got a lot of the traumas.

Slick use of the "hospital" card.

Win-win all the way around. The cop got to enjoy his godlike power. You got to enjoy your exempt status.

You get to keep the spoils of your hard labor.


The dog survives. All is well with the world. You beat the system. Congrats.

Hell ya. She needed to get reported.

That is uncalled for and is actually unlawful as well.

I have helped more then one LEO for various things. Occasionally they will ask me for a favor and its all good unless they want drugs or something like that. But I had one guy who was pissing razorblades. His partner was laughing his ass off. I gave him some antibiotics an got a friend for life.

I have been pulled over probably 7-9 times in the last year. All legit on the way to the hospital for emergencies and deliveries. No tickets.

1 ticket for speeding on vacation. But the State Trooper, told me go to court on this day. I asked why and he said he was going on vacation.

But we had one local LEO get shot multiple times with a 10/22 while giving a lady a ticket. The badguy pulled up behind the cruiser and opened up on the LEO. The LEO had his vest on so no lethal hits but he was hit at least 7 times. We operated on him for a while. This was couple of years ago and he still hasnt been able to go back to work.

The badguy chases the LEO into a high school parking lot and keeps shooting. The PD is only a few blocks away and the lady the LEO had pulled over called 911. Every LEO from every city nearby responded. Badguy was shot multiple times with an MP5 and a Benelli M1. He didnt make it.

That's horse shit.

I am always respectful. I always say sir, no sir. I always keep my hands on the wheel. I do everything you say in your post, sans being a doctor.

I get pulled over once a month. I get ticketed 50 percent of the time. Usually bullshit stuff. Fishing expeditions by cops. I drive a 77 lincoln continental. I couldn't speed if I wanted to.

Some things I get pulled over for:

I "barely signaled" when merging.

Officer wondered what I was doing on Bainbridge Island at night. (I was scouting for the golf course I was going to have to be at at 6am, because I had never been there before).

Waiting outside my place of employment, waiting to go to work. (gate was closed, because I'm the first guy there everyday. Cops shine lights in my eyes, ask me what I'm doing, etc.

Cops pulled me over from in front of me. Reached out the window and pointed over his roof for me to pull over while eye fucking me through the mirror. Looks around my car, feels me out, and gives me a ticket for no seatbelt.

Etc.

I am always courteous, and still get phooked. I am convinced it is a conspiracy involving bush, ardoc, and reverand Al Sharpton.

I said the same thing over at the caranddriver.com forum a couple of years ago and did it EVER set off a firestorm of protest! I think it still gets mentioned there from time to time. Guess the hardcore speeders are pissed off that anyone gets a break.
