So, I was out driving on some rural roads near Calgary.

Whaddya know, RCMP in a marked white F150 ends up on my bumper while driving on an undivided rural highway.

It was pretty obvious he was in traffic enforcement mode, as the R7 kept getting 34.7 alerts anytime someone passed in the opposite direction.

Looks like nobody was getting a speeding ticket, as I had my police escort for quite a ways.
Eventually, we caught up with a real slow Ford Focus. I.e, he was doing 50-60 kph in an 100 kph zone.

After a minute of driving behind the slow Focus, on went the red and blues in my rear view mirror. Idk if the guy didn't realise I was just following the slow vehicle, but he stayed behind me for a little while and only later pulled out, passed, and stopped the slow moving Focus.

So, I guess it doesn't matter if you're too fast or too slow, you're still going to get a ticket.

LEO's around here love following close behind another vehicle, (especially if you're driving a pickup) and shooting oncoming traffic. My theory is that they like to use the front vehicle to stealth themselves.

When they do that to me i suspect they are running my plates, and when it clears, they dive off.
