Stalked by the fuzz – Vol 2, Part 1.

This blog was started when I bought a car in Philadelphia and had to drive it back home to San Francisco.  I had a travelling companion in the shapey good friend Jerry and it turned out that he was quite the cop magnet.  Now I’m flying solo and it seems I hold no attraction to a man in uniform.  I have however become an object of curiosity to almost every state trooper I’ve encountered since entering Nevada.

It goes something like this:-

  • Valentine One starts beeping
  • I reduce speed and set the cruise control
  • I pass trooper at exactly the speed limit
  • Trooper pulls out behind me
  • Trooper stalks me for 15 minutes
  • Trooper gets bored and turns around
I presume that the combination of a BMW doing the speed limit on California plates is enough to pique their interest.  I can only suppose that the consistent stalking is so they can check with California that my car isn’t stolen and being ran out of state.
