Be careful getting baited tailing a speeding LEO. They can pace you in front as well.



I know the LEO vehicles have GPS tracking much like our field trucks do. I guess they only check in the event of an incident?
Try a "Freedom of Information Act" demand for the GPS records. You won't get them but your vehicle will be marked for special attention. A bug on your license plate light will get you a ticket, let alone 0.1 MPH over the limit.

In most jurisdictions, unless cops have lights flashing, speeding is still illegal. It happens everywhere though; people in uniform always have and always will abuse their authority.
"That's life" as the French like to say with a shrug.

Well, I'm guessing they will say they don't want to alert that you're about to be pulled over. Because you could probably gun it to get out of sight faster than he can accelerate.

They try so hard to make that revenue to be able to get the overtime justification.

Had one last night try to sneak on me on US 287 northbound. Rear arrows and jbv1 really helped there in that situation. He then started I/o ing traffic behind me a mile back.

In Texas, marked law enforcement vehicles operated by an on duty LEO (the law says "Police Patrols") are exempt from speeding laws, even if there is no emergency.
Wow!!!
Texas really is "A whole other "Country "

because.... speed kills
AND, speed is selective in who it kills don't 'cha know!!
Sorry, I couldn't help Myself!

Seriously I do understand the wide variations in the capabilities of different vehicles... And drivers.
I just tend to be of the opinion that Those who enforce the Law should obey those laws.
Just My view...
