I have a fun party story about a road trip that went through Texas, way too fast, wound up in a kind of high speed pursuit and ended with a very reasonable ticket. The punch-line is that the story would have been tragic had the trooper searched my car. What also makes the story kind of funny is that while I was driving way too fast I was in total control of my vehicle, on an empty straight-away in the Texas panhandle. My crime was victim free, as speeding cases go. That the punishment was light was, in the end, appropriate.
