Cops, rolling stops, and bushes

So this afternoon I was pulled over by an officer...
the one time I decide NOT to wheelie & punch it to 80 on an empty boulevard, I get pulled over..... PHEW!

I turned right from a dead stop and proceed down the boulevard 2 blocks. On my right, there is an intersection with another street. This intersection is mostly blocked by a very large and overgrown bush. I see a vehicle roll through the stop sign, behind the bush, and partially into my lane, so I grab a healthy handful of brake and swerve around the front of the car.

Oh, that was a COP! He immediately turns on his lights, so I immediately stop. Guy proceeds to tell me that I was "flying down the road"....

"Uh, sir, I only had 2 blocks to attain speed and you kinda rolled through the intersection behind that bush - I had no idea if you were going to pull out in front of me so I smashed the brakes and THAT'S why it looked bad."

He said ride safe, have a good night

P.S. If he had seen any of the riding previously to this particular incident he would have revoked my license on the spot!

Wow, just be careful bro', or you can use Waze app' before you do crazy stuff, it will reduce the potential risk of getting pulled over.

You just need to personalize the settings. For example I disabled seeing other wazers because the icons cluttered up the screen.

It works great in Chicago for navigating traffic and knowing where cops and cameras are.
I lost gps signal a couple times in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and by Starved Rock. But I stayed the course and was only off the map a few minutes.

Luckily you didn't get a cop that was worthless and gave you a ticket, this a rare encounter indeed.

Very lucky encounter. I'm sure many more people don't have such lucky encounters to report back with ...
