Red face Crazy thing just happened!

Ok so something wild just happened, i went outside at 10:00pm to take some pics of my new off road lights... so i got in the truck with my dad and we went out to the road and snapped a few pics, as we got back in the truck i saw a vehicle coming up in the distance so i continued on down the road waiting for that vehicle to turn into a driveway so i can safely make a u-turn and go back home.... well down the road i go and i approach the intersection (i am out in the country and i go to this intersection every day and i very rarely see another vehicle at it and if there is you can see it before you get there) so it is a four way stop but one of those ones you can just slow down and safely roll through kinda thing (i know you all know what i mean)

well... the vehicle behind me did not turn into a driveway so i was slowing down (almost stopped at the stop sign) and i was waiting for the vehicle behind me to signal so i could signal and turn the opposite way and turn around, well the vehicle behind me did not put his signal on so i signaled and turned right (did not come to a complete stop, rolled through less than 10 km/hr) and then BAM flashing lights.... it was a cop behind me!!!

i pulled over and he asked me how i'm doing and why i am out there so i explained i leave down the road and was just testing my lights and waiting for a time to pull over, he then mentioned how i didn't completely stop at the stop sign and that he didnt really care but pulled me over anyways to warn me... so he checked my license, ownership and insurance and sent me on my way... nice guy

scared the crap out of me though... i have never seen a cop on my road so the chances of that happening are VERY slim... and i always do my best to obey the laws of the road because insurance rates for me in Ontario are already outrages (clean record) and one little ticket like failing to stop for a stop sign would make it sky rocket!!

Very happy he was nice about it

it doesn't bother me if they do drive down my road, but it for sure caught me off guard that he was behind me... like i say its a country road that mostly only people who live here drive on, i am lucky that he was nice though haha i know for sure that if i wasn't in front of him there is no way he would have made a full stop either :P

lol that would be the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) you are thinking of, they do wear those uniforms on special occasion or i believe when they ride the horses (you don't see them out and about patrolling though, they are more of a specialized police force)

i was pulled over by a regional detactchement... there is also the provincial police here (in Ontario it is the OPP
