I'm riding home from class. I got onto the on ramp to get onto interstate. I'm in the right lane and everyone is doing about 30 so I pull into the left and speed up to the posted 50. I get to the end of the on ramp were the merger is and I go to slip into a decent size hole between an Impala and a suburban. As I'm moving in I hear a siren and instinctivly slow and pull to the break down. The siren then stops. The Impala then rolls past me with the widow down and a guy pointing at me mouthing out "You!". At this point I figure its an unmarked cop so I stop and wait for him to stop but he keeps on going. So I get back onto the road and keep going. As I get onto the interstate I see the cop moving along the road, and unfortunatly, I end up behind him. I'm stuck behind him for a ways until the next exit were anouther lane is added and I get into it and just keep going. The traffic is pretty heavy so we aren't going far. I keep going for a ways and he keeps moving around to stay in sight of me. My lane ends up moving faster than his and as I am moving past him he hits the siren again then turns it off. I just kept going. He kept following me for a while so I slowed down and let him pass, then he would slow down so I didn't get far behind. At this point I;m doing 10 under the speed limit with him one lane over from me. He keeps this up for anouther 15 miles, as cars are passing me doing 85 and 90, and then finally speeds up and moves on. (I did my best to stay out of his sight). But what the hell was going on?!?! Was he just mad because I tried to merge into his lane? WTF! I'm having bad luck with cops lately.

You shouldn't have worried about it. I would have just gone the speed limit,and if the stupid ass wanted to pull me over, let him. I would have been happy to argue with him and make him look like an asshole in court.

Its rare I get pissed off while riding, unless I'm in traffic, but man did he piss me off. I was so tempted to just flick him off and roll on past but I knew he woulda done something then. Man it just chapped my ass though. Thanks for confimiing that it wasn't me.

In FL you are required to have your AA or equivilent atleast to be a cop. Why? I dont know. But its a requirment. I've looked into law enforcement as a career oportunity, but dont worry I would be one of the nice cops and let ya off real easy if I even did anything:D

Some good tips above, but in your works "--I figure its an unmarked cop----" so I would have decided to ingnore said thoughts of a cop & gone at the pace of the traffic.

Had it been a so callled unmarked police car then better to have a small ticket & take down all the info you could. It could be some cage with said sounds they had installed into their car & having a game with you.

I think we have some late teen-age kids or in early 20s kids with said sound effects they can switch to for quite often I have received the same YET know I was travelling at the intown speeds of 50KPH--30mph. Followed the car till it landed at a quick food joint & out hop these two young ones.

I take down the LP make, model, colour of the car & such. Walk in & they are slurping on some drink only both sort of choke a bit for I say---------"You twits are not RCMP" so you had best remove said sound effects from your Toyoto for I am turning this over to the RCMP within minutes.

Since then the same sound effects have appeared on another kid with another make & model of car. Anyway give it some thought for with electronics to-day they can have something like a TANK coming up behind you or explosives to whatever they want.

Let me refrase, I assumed it was a cop at the time, I late new it was a cop because when I was pulling past him (the second time he hit his siren) I saw the dash PC as well as the light mounts on the inside of his window.

But yea, I have seen kids with the sound effects on there cars, I've also heard of people getting arrested for the same thing, it seems they were trying to fake out an unmarked cop.
