staying onside with the boys in blue

I had a close shave with Sussex's finest yesterday.
I was' making progress' along a nice local B road, and soon found myself attached to a convoy of 'slow' people. So, not content with conserving my fuel tank, came off a bend, had the vision, had the gear, so nailed the gas.
The starship enterprise reared up on its hind wheels, similar to the 'no 53' love bug, rolled up its sleeves, snorted once, and blasted down the other side of the road. Old 'herbie' whistled passed car1,.......2,......OH BUGGER, no 3 has a no. plate i know, unmarked traffic volvo.
Im committed to this 4 car overtake, what do you do???
a) Close your eyes, its only a dream??!!
b) Throw a fistful of twenty's at the cops, and tell em to keep the change??
Im obviously exceeding the national speed limit, at this point, however as i pull along side them, in a hazy rush, i give them a little respectful nod, and a wave, and pass them and the car in front of the cops.
The outcome? I didn't get pulled. God was looking after me, this time round on friday 13th.

Ive just got in to work late, as had to stop at a big RTA, being a paramedic, im kind of duty bound to do so, some poor sod stashed his bmw 'm' series, after colliding with a drink driver!! I had great delight in telling the traffic cop, when he arrived, of my suspicion!! my scoob was nestled at the front, no ambo's there yet, and the cop said "nice car, very distinctive no. plate(999) (sad bastard!!!), done any big overtakes lately?? Nervous laughter followed, but he was cool bowt it, he owns an evo 340!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
