So I'm driving from Connecticut to Georgia yesterday with my family and I saw a fair share of state troopers patroling and camping on the highways; of course its thier job to do so. During this drive there were 2 instances where I passed a statie as they were watching traffic (once in Virginia, the other in South Carolina) who eventually left thier position only to follow me. Both times I wasn't speeding, maybe a few miles over the limit but noting over 5, and well of course my instant reaction anytime I saw them on the side was to brake and slow down a little, wasn't driving erratically or anything..nothing, but for some reason I caught thier attention and so they decided to come speeding right up behind me (by this time I got into the right lane) without thier lights on, only to follow me for a minute or 2...and then they left. Nothing happened. I'm glad nothing did because I wasn't doing anything wrong, but it made me think why the hell would they first come after me since I wasn't speeding to begin with (tags are fine, vehicle is registered, etc) and to follow me for a bit and then leave?? What do they do in that circumstance? Do they run your plates to see if its legit, no records, etc, scare tactic, see if you'd chase off like the fools on "COPS"?? Any members here work for the law enforcement that can chime in on this question, or anyone really...
