  1. I was on my way to work, running a little late so sped up to 60 mph on a 55 mph state highway. A cop fell in behind me. I didn’t think much of it. I know a lot of the officers in the area, and they’ll let me and many other people get away with small things like doing 60 in a 55. God forbid they get an emergency call in the middle of a minor traffic stop. That aside, I was cruising along at 60 and everything seemed normal. I don’t know what triggered this, but in the oncoming lane, a Mercury something or other went cruising by. I can only assume he was speeding given what followed, but it didn’t seem like much over. Next thing I know those pretty little reds and blues show up in my rearview and I watch this cop do a 180. I mean throw that back end around and leave skid marks on the highway. I can understand if we were on a backroad in the middle of the day. I’ve even done that a couple of times for fun, but this was a state highway in the middle of rush hour. Fast forward about 3 seconds and that Mercury went from a dot in my rearview to a cloud on the street and before I knew it, they were both gone. It was awesome to watch, but I wish I could have figured out what was going on. I never saw that cop after, or at least his car. Maybe it was totaled in the chase that followed. I don’t know how it ended. I wish I could find out. I was fighting the urge to turn my car around and follow as long as I could without breaking any laws, but this was years ago. I doubt the cop remembers the incident.
