|01:56 pm - poll!|
say you're driving along the road, and you come to a cop car stopped in the middle of your lane, with thier lights flashing. they are talking to someone they have apparently pulled over, and do not appear to have noticed you. to get past them you will have to go into the oncoming traffic lane. it is around 3am and there is no traffic to speak of in either direction. what do you do?
drive around them
wait for them to notice you and wave you on
other (say in a comment)
if you chose A, you get pulled over and get a $72 ticket from an extremely bitchy woman who is blatantly pissed about something else and taking it out on you. congratulations!
Pull out my gatt and waste that mothafucka! down with the police state!
my gatt was in the laundry
did you use a dryer sheet? because if not, it really does bad things for the action.

I find it highly amusing that the only respondent- so far- who has agreed with your answer of "drive around them", does not drive.
yeah, that's probably not a good sign for me
i would probably go by the cop. but it would depend if there was a passing lane. if not i would probably come to a complete stop, and then go. cause obviously they don't want to have traffic backed up behind them.
i didn't stop, but i slowed the hell down
I would slow down and creep up towards the stopped cop car, and if the cop didn't acknowledge me, I would drive past. I said in the poll I would drive by, but I wouldn't do so at normal speeds. What was the ticket FOR, btw?
that is what i did. i slowed down, they weren't paying attention, so i went. the ticket was for a yellow line violation

I'd be all about contesting that sucka.

I'd do it (contest the charge). I'm assuming this was a road where passing on the opposing side is illegal, btw. If not, I don't even understand what that was about. In a case like that, I'd probably stop behind the car first, but if I wasn't given my wave in a few.. seconds, probably, i think I would have swung around. Just like with any other idiot parked in the road.
What was her justification for the ticket, btw? If she pulled someone over and was sitting in the middle of the road blocking traffic, that is at the very least irresponsible. I say go and contest it, and even if you don't get out of your ticket, make it well known and documented that she was really stupid and see if someone will yell at her. Would that be worth $72?
