Thats the straight story according to Glendale, California, police officer Ed Malouf, who stars in Court TVs new show Speeders, and says when it comes to scattered speeders, hes heard it all.
Says Malouf: Everyones got an excuse. One person told me, I didnt know my car could go this fast! Another said, I just bought new sandals and theyre slippery, and making me press harder on the gas! Ive pretty much heard it all.
So, instead of coming up with bogus excuses, Malouf offers some helpful hints for how to act when you hear those fateful words: License and registration please.
Malouf urges drivers to be cooperative and respectful, and to save the real arguing for the judge.
He says, Everyone I pull over says they were speeding because they have to go to the bathroom. But as soon as I come back with a ticket, they suddenly dont have to go anymore.
Speeders premieres on June 7.
