On the way back from Rotorua just north of Hamilton the trusty red & blues appeared in my window... Pulled over, had my licence ready and the conversation went something like this: COP (smiling): Evening, you in a hurry to get back to Auckland are you? ME (not smiling): Evening Officer, yes I believe I may have strayed over the limit a bit COP: Yeah, I clocked you at 139km/h under the overpass back there, I suspect you were going a lot faster when you past me because I had some catching up to do and only registered you at this speed. OK, just count from 1 to 10 and speak directly into this device please. ME: 1, 2, 3 etc etc *BEEP* COP: OK, this shows alcohol I'm afraid - you had anything to drink tonight? ME: Yes, I had a couple of beers in Hamilton COP: OK, going to need you to give one long continuous breath into this please ME: *complies and device beeps* COP: OK, it says FAIL YOUTH but because you're over 20 it's a pass ME: *nodding* COP: You realise you were 1 km/h from... ME: ... Ja, losing my licence for 28 days, sorry *sheepish grin* COP: OK, well I'll just go write this up and will talk to you soon. Eventually he returns with my $400 fine and my 50 demerit points. The guy was decent about the whole thing and I was fully cooperative. After this, he basically let me go. So I guess LTNZ Christmas Party is on me this year & my perfect driving record is now ruined. Lesson learned.
