We who drive all the time live in constant fear of being pulled over... Those of us who don't always drive the speed limit...I have been pulled over my share of times and for the most part always got a warning. Don't get me wrong I have had a few tickets over the years. There is no worse feeling then to see the red lights appear and over we go. Just yesterday I was heading into work and this "driver" cut me off and sped away only to be seen over by the side of the road a few miles later . Apparently she didn't impress the CHP, caused she continued speeding in front of the cop. Not smart. I have been there and it's awful that feeling in your stomach when you get pulled over. Usually you know it's a ticket not matter what, but in all fairness, I have been let go with a warning. I have also tried to many occasions to fight the ticket in court, hoping the Officer doesn't show, but that only happened once, and now a days it doesn't happen very much. Revenue for the state and county is based on the amount of tickets that are written. So being pulled over its't always for just safety reason. I'm not complaining because I usually deserved the ticket and pay the price of speeding. We need to realize that the CHP and local authorities are doing their job, which is a hard one. Each minute they work they put their lives on the line, and deserve our support, and appreciation for the work they have chosen to do...... The story below comes from People Magazine and show among other things that everybody gets pulled over even if you are Carrie Underwood
Even a “rule follower” like Carrie Underwood drives a little too fast sometimes, but it’s nothing a few tears can’t fix.
“Well, it happened today,” the country music superstar wrote on Twitter . “After 18 years, I can no longer say I’ve never been pulled over for speeding. I feel so ashamed! I may or may not have cried in my car after the cop let me go. #RuleFollower #GrannyDriver #ImSorry”

The “Blown Away” singer, 34, has been keeping out of the public eye since she had a “hard fall” on steps outside her home in November, which left her suffering from several injuries, including a broken wrist and “40 and 50 stitches” to her face.
“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” she wrote in the note obtained by PEOPLE. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”
She continued: “In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [Underwood’s husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”
