I was driving down the street when I saw a police car behind me. Suddenly, it turned on its siren. I realized that I was being pulled over.
Officer: Can I see your driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance?
Ray: Sure. Here you are, officer.
Officer: Did you know that you were speeding? You were going 70 in a 55 mile an hour zone.
Ray: I was? No, I didn’t know.
Officer: You also ran a red light and your brake light is out. I see that your tags have also expired. I’m going to have to cite you for all of that.
Ray: I’m sure I didn’t run a red light, and I didn’t know my brake light wasn’t working. I just renewed my registration and I’m still waiting for my new tags to arrive in the mail. Is there any way I can get away with just a warning?
Officer: I’m afraid not.
Ray: What’s the fine for all of those violations?
Officer: That information is on the back of the citation. Here you are. Have a nice day.
Ray: Thanks. Thanks a lot!
