Pulled over last night at around 11:30PM in Mt Vernon NY:

The Good: I wasn't drinking :rofl:

The Bad: I was pulled out of my car after a 5 minute questioning so I can have a flashlight aimed at my F'in pupils- Embarrassing!

The Ugly: When asked why was I getting pulled over, the officer told me because I was swirving all over the road for the past 1/2 mile. My initial thought was that I was driving perfectly normal and proceeded to kindly debate this with him. Only until I was on my merry way home (no ticket) did I realize the cop probably saw me swirving around some potholes!! :doh:

It is so sad that I have accustomed myself to this style of driving to the point where I can't even reflect on it when being questioned on a possible DWI.:tsk:

Cheers to Pothole Explosions!

Nice roads y'all got up north. I wonder where your expensive petrol tax goes to. And your absurd tolls.

At least you weren't avoiding the potholes while in close pursuit of the dude in front of you at 140 mph...

Didn't we see a thread like this quite recently? Maybe an uncommon behavior in the boroughs?

If you haven't been drinking, just say you hurt your leg and let them do a breathalizer. I'll be damned if I'm gonna do calisthenics on the side of the road.

If you have been drinking and know you are going to fail, refuse all the tests. Sure you may lose your license for a year, but it beats getting a DWI.

5$ back, 5$ forth, just to pay for the bridge to see the GF... And they still want you to pick up the dinner tab :)

Definitely. In that thread however, the guy was at least smart enough to point out his reasons for swiring. I was sitting there telling the cops I wasn't swiring which lead him to believe I really had something to drink :rofl:

They were uniformed cops. Usually when those guys pull you over in NYC, they're looking to nail your ass for something more than a small traffic violation.
