Nothing like starting out your Monday nearly getting rear-ended on the way to work. The worst part about it is that a cop caused the near-rear-ending.
If I take 202 North to work, there is a usual backup right by where Route 30 merges into 202. Well, the cop in an unmarked car was sitting maybe a good 1/8 of a mile south of today’s backup. There was a big Chevy Suburban in front of me who slowed down before the backup. I couldn’t see why he was slowing down so soon, but at least I was paying attention to him, so I slowed down.
And then the car behind me wasn’t paying so close attention apparently and all of a sudden I hear a “screeeeeeeech“. I look in my rearview mirror to see a woman and a man in an old mazda with an “oh s***” look on their faces. Good grief.
Of course the cop was just sitting there (I’ve seen him there on a few previous mornings), slowing down already slowed down traffic doing plate checks. He didn’t have his radar on at all, as evidenced by my radar detector.
