Does getting pulled over for suspected drug running in Missouri count?

We were on our last 200 miles to St Louis running the speed limit..70. Profiled, makes an interesting story.

Stopped for suspected drug running.

For those of us who own our own businesses or work for a living for others, that is NOT always an option.

While I don't condone speeding to the point of endangering others, or my own, I'm not one for wasting time either.

It's fine to "enjoy the scenery". However, when a motorhome driver has absolutely no sense of urgency, then that's when they can get a ticket for impeding traffic.

We are all on the planet for a limited amount of time. Don't waste that time, especially for others, by not pulling over frequently.

That's the funniest thing I have read all day!!

When my grandfather turned 80, (he no longer drove), he always insisted that we "speed up" when anyone was giving him a ride! His reasoning was that he didn't want to waste time.

As a 16 year old kid with a fresh driver's license, driving my grandfather around to run his errands, he taught me to make fun of retirees in their 60's wasting their life and everyone's time on the roads by causing additional traffic! He could identify a retiree driver from a mile away!

He lived to be 98, and he never wasted a minute.

I was like that when I was young. Rushing from place to place, experiencing as much as I could and not fully enjoying or appreciating the things I saw and did.

Now I have slowed up and take the time to appreciate the things I see and activities I do. I am enjoying life more now that when I was 30. I take the time to appreciate what I do. Certainly I wish I was 30 again. I think I would slow down and do a few things really well instead jumping through as many things as I could.

The Bounder seems to like 65, so that's where I tend to keep it unless the speed limit is lower. Or I'm going north on I-17 here in AZ, in which case I'm happy if I can keep her up to 50 climbing the hill.

Some people, and it does not much matter what they are driving, Drive like they are in a big hurry to get to their funeral.

Others drive like they are not in such a big hurry.

One thing many forget is where we all are going.. We are going to our funerals...And I for one, am in NO HURRY.

It's my opinion that people who speed never recover the time lost in a crash or being pulled over for a traffic violation.
