    Hey all, quick story with visual aids!

    Out yesterday heading to Clayton, GA from Asheville, NC.
    Got passed by a new? Mustang with personalized plates (LARRI18) and then we traded off taking the lead for a while. In my opinion, the guy changed lanes way too often (trying to "apex" the curves I guess) and used his blinkers each time... :doh:

    Anyway, I got ahead of him and showed him how I think it ought to be done. Smooth and quiet. Zen like. :ninja:

    At some point he decided to blow by me after I'd forgotten about him. I was already 10-15 over PSL.
    A few seconds later I get the 35.5 warning from JBV1. I tried to flash him while slowing down to PSL but I wasn't entirely familiar with the car yet and ended up hitting the shift paddle instead. :mmmhmm: I think I finally flashed the lights right before making visual contact with the LEO which means he was already in trouble. :facepalm:

    An unmarked Charger coming the other way slowed, turned around in the middle of the highway and gave chase. They got off the highway and down the side road. I feel for him. He probably didn't get off with a warning. :cop:

    Is there a video for this? If not,

    Mods can we move to Stories from the front line?
