Ever been driving on a lonely road or at a quiet time and notice oh hey officer friendly is tailing you, and he continues to do so for MILES! So you are making sure you abide by all motor vehicle regulations and speed limits, which only seems to interest the officer further.
What is the best course of action here? My vote is to pull into the nearest open business if there is one like a fast food place or gas station as soon as you notice the tail, I have seen from experience that after a certain amount of time spent following someone a cop will just make up a ticket. I think it is best to bring the whole thing to a decision point early on for the officer to pursue or give up, which will likely be give up.
I was once a passenger in a car when after one of these multi-mile followings the cop pulled the car over and claimed they were going to write a citation for failure to remain in lane(claiming the car strayed too far during a turn a few miles back:rolleyes::rolleyes: ) and started asking passengers for ID which no one had when it started raining and the officer said the driver would be let off with a warning and left. Guessing that running the passengers for warrants and searching them was the real goal.
My nephew was followed by a cruiser when he was on foot, he was followed home and then the cop knocked on the door and wrote him a ticket for supposedly littering at some point while being followed.
There have been a few more experiences that say to me the best thing to do is bring the tail to an end early.
