Default Got pulled over yesterday!

So I got gas yesterday, paid with my debit card. As I pulled out i started going down the road and looked back and saw a cop behind me and he put his lights on. I was like oh boy here we go. He got out and asked if I had pumped fuel. I said yes. He asked if I had receipt, which I did. He said that someone just ran off without paying and he only saw me leaving. There were people standing on their balconies watching, another cop showed up. it was quite a scene for it being nothing. So my advice to all of you, Get your Receipt when you get gas! If I didn't have it I would have been a huge mess to prove I paid for my gas.

Thats how it was when I lived in Pittsburgh. In this part of KY, they let you pump first and pay after if using cash. I just always use my debit card to pay.

Some of us less sophisticated people usually use the honor system to fill-up, you know, pump, then pay! Here in KY, most of the less urban areas work on the honor system. With the price of gas where it is, this will be a more common occurrence...

With the price of fuel, a drive off might be considered a felony!!!

Yea, if you're in rural backwoods Kentucky, then there is no way in hell that cop could have made it to the gas station that quickly. So he basically saw you, and was soo stupid that he assumed it was you, even though the real perp could have easily left 10 minutes prior.

Now if Barney Fife there was sitting in an adjacent parking lot, then that's a different story. But since you were the only vehicle he saw leaving there, then it's obvious that wasn't the case.

Here in my town, you pay first, then pump. It won't allow you to just fill up first.

around here some are pre pay some are not. Say we got 7 pumps in a row, all facing the station. the inside 3 will be pay after you pump, the outside 4 are pre-pay. Best of both worlds!

Most gas stations have multiple video cameras to get plate numbers of anything at or leaving the pumps. If there was gas stolen, it won't take long to find out who stole it.

Backwoods Kentucky, which is where it seems like the O.P. is located, is a completely different time and place.lol.

I haven't seen a pump-then-pay gas station in years!

I never get a receipt. I do not need a reminder on how much it cost to fill my Excursion.

most stations in MN are pay inside/pay at the pump (your choice) except the pumps that are far away, then those are strictly pay at the pump. and all major stations have camera's and the pumps now have a small built in camera on the pump (like an ATM) and if you do try to drive away without paying, not only is your vehicle posted as "wanted" in the store, so is a pic of your face. Also, it is a felony in MN to steal gas. punishable by a fine (not sure how much) and Immediate one year suspension of your license.

THEFT OVER 9000!

Seriously though, they do honor system here on some pumps, usually the ones closest to the cashier, the further ones usually are a pay first.

I think we're just seeing the last of our pump-then-pay stations here in central PA, but while visiting friends in both Scranton and Philly, I started seeing stations that are not only pay-first, but require that you enter your billing zip code before you can use your credit card (or visa debit card, in my case.)
