My little brother was ticketed at 124 MPH in our father's GT
-V6. The cop called our father who came and picked Kieran up (amazingly the police officer allowed him to avoid jail and return with Dad). Our father simply wanted to know from my brother "How did you do that?" meaning how did you talk your way out of going to the hoose-gow. Little brother misunderstood the question, thinking he was being interrogated with a "how could you do this to us type question) and, trying to mitigate punishment by showing some sense of responsibility, replied "Well, Dad, I was slowing down
'cause I saw someone flashing their lights to signal there was a cop ahead, and I just could'nt get slow enough to avoid getting caught."
Needless to say , even though Dad was quite impressed by little brother's ability to talk his way out of going to jail as well as his driving ability, he was removed from the insurance policy after than and had to use his own car for anything he wanted.
