Sometimes, when I was driving on the road, I saw the police car just behind me. I have to be cautious at the moment, because the officer maybe observing you at the moment. I didn't try to speed up, nor to change lane of something. After while, the police car just turn away. I just hate to see those police cars tag behind. They aren't friendly, and they might just extorted your money out of your pocket.

That happened to me once and I feel the same way. As if they are waiting for you to make a bad move. They will be in front of you with a solemn face.

Yes I do hate that!!! I tend to behave better, slow down, even if I'm already going the right speed. I love it when they turn down another street! Last winter, I hit some black ice, spun around, and hit a dirt wall...luckily I didn't hit anyone else, I got out of the car and didn't hardly see any damage, and I hit pretty hard...I turned around, drove to where I was going, but notice steam coming out of my hood. I proceeded to drive, very carefully, to a nearby garage I knew of. I went thru a YELLOW, and it was YELLOW lite, I was afraid to stop cos I mite not start again. There was that police car behind me, I knew it was for me, but I kept going to the garage. I got there, and there were 2 police cars after me!!!! I was upset enough about the accident, and now the police gave me a ticket...the other police car thought I had a stolen car, it matched the description, but when I showed all my info, they left. At least the policewoman that gave me the ticket, she said I went thru red...I didn't! But she told me I wouldn't get any points against me cos of the accident...but the ticket was over $300.00. Oh well, guess it wasn't my day. Then it took a week to fix my car. Thank God for car insurance! Did that ever happen to anyone?

That is if I had done something wrong why they are behind me. But if I know I have nothing to do with them tailing behind me then what for? I know I'm in good.

It makes me a bit nervous to see a cop right behind me, but I don't get too upset. Most of the time, they are just patroling the area and as long as I am not speeding, I don't worry much. I do breathe a sigh of relief when they turn off though.

Yeah i really hate this thing. I am driving since i was 15 and now i am 21 and i still dont have a license. I tried to make my license but due to some legal complications i was unable to make it in the country where i live. So while driving I always had a fear of police. In my country of residence the police can jail you and fine you if you dont have a license. But luckily i was not even caught a single time by police. Nor i was ever stopped in a road block. But whenever police car use to come near my car i use to be so nervous and i use to hate that thing badly. I still dont have a driving license i hope i will make it soon to end this thing hopefully.

Yeah, I hate seeing a cop car behind... it makes me nervous sometimes. you never know what they might do and sometimes they will pull you over for the stupidest thing or for no reason at all and just make up one because they have nothing better to do. I've been seeing a lot of bad cops lately too. cops doing whatever simply because they are cops and can get away with it. i think its bull-crap...cops can be so annoying sometimes. I hate when i see them lol but other times i like seeing them because then i feel safe lol its a love, hate type of thing...although they are annoying they do serve a purpose.

I won't hate them as they are basically doing their job and honestly it is because they patrol on the street that some people won't try to break the laws. But then, while I don't hate them, I also don't prefer seeing them behind of me. When they do, I will feel being watched and tends to get nervous. It is not that I want speeding without their presence, it is just a little uncomfortable.
