Ohio Highway Patrol- good encounter

Postby wobblygoblin » Sat Sep 01, 2018 7:20 pm

Wife and I were driving back from Uhrichsville last Sunday and I guess I didn't slow down for the reduced speed ahead fast enough. Lights come on. I pull over and my wife gets to see the "I need to inform you sir I have a concealed handgun license and am currently armed". The officer was nice and professional. Still got my ticket though. :(

Yeah.... OSHP would ticket their own grandmother :lol:

I had a trooper explain it to me like this: "Your actions caused me to enforce a law that put me on the highway, outside of my vehicle, in traffic. That comes with a cost no matter the circumstances..."

I would have said "you're the person that made the career choice that finds you standing outside your car on the highway wearing a funny looking hat", but I probably get a beating.

My wife got stopped a number of years ago on the way to Columbus for a nursing meeting. It was set up to stop every car they could. She was just keeping up with traffic. At the time, she was driving our 1986 4Runner SR5 which was black with grey stripes, fog lamps and off-road tires. The trooper was surprised that a 39 year old woman was driving it, saying that he thought it would be a kid. They had stopped about fifteen vehicles in a long line of vehicles on the road. The trooper then found out she was a nurse on a way to a meeting. He apologized, but said he had to issue a ticket because his supervisor was demanding that every car stopped be ticketed. She was given a ticket for doing 60 in a 55 zone. Mickey Mouse is alive and well in the OSHP.

As I have posted before, LEO tend to not issue tickets to doctors/nurses if they can, said my wife who was a nurse. Reason: if the LEO ends up in the emergency room do they really want a doctor/nurse who they just gave a ticket to taking care of them?

Or as Ronnie Reagan remarked when they wheeled him into surgery after getting shot by John Hinckley, "Please tell me you are all Republicans."
