    Beautiful Monday morning, around 6:30, 68 degrees out and not that many cars on the road for a Monday morning, I am thinking people had too good a time out in the sun this weekend. Merge onto I-205N off of HWY 14. Get up to speed after getting out from behind a slow car and star following a black Subaru Impreza going ~80.
    Look over after the lane on the right hand side merges and here is this wonderful cop with his door open, squating next to the car, pointing a radar gun at me. Thinking "Oh shit, I am already running late, my gage cluster keeps telling me I am almost out of fuel, and now I am going to get pulled over." but he doesn't get in the car. He just points right at me, I nod, then he procedes to put his hand even with his head down to his knee multiple times, I nod and back the speed down to a nice pace of 66 (indicated).

    Thank you officer for making my day that much better.



    TL;DR - I was speeding and the cop motioned for me to slow down instead of pulling me over. I am almost out of gas.

    Same thing happened to me this morning. Right off the ramp, westfield shopping center onto WA500. I merged into traffic on the left. He was pointing his radar, but then just waved.
    :mrgreen: i was kinda shocked, but it definitely made my day

    Huge thanks to the officers who understand sticky situations
