Police


Police: Could I have your driver’s license and registration please?

Driver: Is there a problem officer?

Police: Your drivers license and registration please.

Driver: OK . . . here you go.

Police: The speed limit along this road is 45 kilometers per hour. You were clocked in excess of 65.

Driver: Really? It's a new car. You know how they are, they drive so smoothly you don't realize how fast you're going.

Police: Yes sir, but that's still no excuse.

Driver: Sounded good.

Police: Sir, could you please step out of the car?

Driver: Can’t I just sit here while you write the ticket?

Police: No sir. According to the dispatcher, you have four outstanding traffic tickets and a failure to appear citation. I'm afraid I have to take you in. Please put your hands behind your back so I can handcuff you.

Driver: I don't suppose a bribe would help?

Police: Not unless you want another charge against you.

Driver: Forget I mentioned it.
