Speed or Insurance Check?
So, on my drive yesterday to Derby from the sunny North East, I came across the most ridiculous driver swerving between slow to middle to fast lane. Keep in mind this was on the M62, so vehicles are travelling fast. Anyways, Mr "I think my Fiesta is an F1 car" continues to swing between lanes like he's Tarzan. Wanting to pass safely, I waited until he was in the slow lane, remained in the middle lane and put my foot down. And as soon as I do this? Yep. There's a police X5 under the bridge, with a laser gun pointing right at me out of the drivers window. I was doing around 92 on my speedo (which I'm presuming is actually around 88)
My question is - the officer was in the drivers seat with the gun himself. So do people think this was to simply check insurance etc, or most deffinately have I been done?
Also, there was a few stops made on vehicles further down the road?
Thanks for any insight, I appreciate it!!
