Lex Bovis, Non Jovis

Driving home yesterday, I was tailgated by a Mass. cop for about a mile on Rt. 4. Even though he had Mass. plates (and I live in NH) I was a good little sheep and drove the speed limit --45 mph. 
But that wasn't enough for him, I guess. He turned on his flashers, and when I pulled over thinking maybe I had a tail light out or something, he just sped up and kept going. 
I'm sure that was a totally legitimate use of police powers.

Probably working up the guts to pull you over and ask for driving and/or shooting lessons.

Well, we can be generous and assume the latter action, the lights and speed-off, were due to something he heard on the radio.

The former was probably either a habit applied in the wrong place or else harassment. "Hey, I can make you sweat bullets, you little civvie."

45MPH? Ouch.

Just to clarify, the lights went off and stayed off after I was out of the way.
