Trucker catches cop speeding and talking on mobile phone
30 June 2014
A truck driver in the USA recorded a cop speeding and driving whilst talking on his mobile phone.
The trucker driving through Illinois last week claims he caught the police officer speeding on wet roads and talking on his cell phone and has posted a video on YouTube of the alleged incident.
The trucker said his camera was rolling when he himself was pulled over for honking at the officer.
In the video the trucker posted on YouTube of the alleged incident, the officer at first argues with the trucker, saying he was allowed to be on the phone and that he wasn’t speeding. He then said he was going to give the trucker a ticket for using his horn unlawfully.
When the trucker informed him he was being recorded, the officer went back to his cruiser with the driver’s information, comes back and says the trucker isn’t getting a ticket.
According to the video, the officer also allegedly gave the trucker a violation-free truck inspection and admitted he wasn’t paying attention to how fast he was going.
