YouTube have many of you ever run into this situation yourselves? Being pulled over and questioned significantly?
In a Basic Rule state, the speed limit is more of a guideline.

Since you ask.... In the 1980s, midnight New Years Eve, I was driving though downtown in my VW panel van. Some gold Toranado lunged out of a bar's parking lot and I want into an evasive maneuver that had me slide backward through the intersection at the Lane County Courthouse and bounce off the far curb. No problem except a patrol car was sitting at the light.

We talked of course, he had me walk toe-to-toe (I'd been out dancing. ) and we discussed the trajectories and wet pavement. Finally, after he said I was free to go he said "Why don't they all just go home?"
