Hey all. Get this. I'm merging off of I-57 onto I-80 and before I ever get onto 80, just at the end of the off-ramp, this jag-off in like a gray Ford Focus (I think) shoots by on 80 doing easily 85-90 in the far left lane and gets far ahead of me initially. He is weaving in and out of the left and middle lane just nearly passing people and as I near the first off-ramp he gets over in the far right lane and gets off and starts driving the off-ramp really slow which allows me to catch up to him completely. The whole time I'm thinking "what a jag." As we're merging on to the lane, I quickly pulled over into the far left to make sure I can pass his slow ass before he can jump into the left lane and he proceeds to stick his arm out of the car pointing at me so I flipped him off. I pull up the light and he pulls up to the light in the far right turn lane. I look over at him and he's a cop, in an unmarked Focus with no inside lights and regular license plate, not government issue so its obviously his personal car. Now I don't think he's a state cop because I would recognize that uniform, looked more like a rent-a-cop complete with baseball cap. So as I am looking at him, he's mouthing something to me and has his hands out the window holding a pad of paper or something and motioning like he is writing a ticket and pointing at me. So I mouthed back to him "go f- yourself" and drove on. He turned right.
Yeah I was speeding and was probably going faster than the 30 mph ramp speed but my radar detector never went off, but he could have been pacing me. Question is, you think I could get a ticket by mail if he reports me somewhere? I mean I didn't get pulled over and I'm almost certain the guy wasn't a state cop and it was state police jurisdiction I think.
Thoughts? I'll be pretty pissed if I get some kind of ticket in the mail considering this guy was driving like a bigger jag than I was.
