SSP Policeman Admits Error

Just the other night, around midnight, zipping along the periférico, I suddenly saw a pair of headlights coming up fast in my rear view mirror; then the inevitable flashing blue and red lights came on as it rode my rear bumper at 110 kms an hour.

I pulled over and the policeman from the newly created SSP (state police) stepped out of his truck and came up to my window. He looked in, put his hand on my shoulder and said “Oh, sorry, I thought this was the speeding car I was looking for. You didn’t see a white Pontiac pass you?” “Um, no” I replied. “I thought it was you. Sorry about that” And he got back into his truck. And drove away.

A real first for me!
