Pin It

Good, Better, Best

GOOD

A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated
radar post in the Manawatu with a Fine of $160 included.
Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $160.
The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.


BETTER

A cop from the NZ Police was watching for speeders, but wasn't getting many.

Then he discovered the problem - a 12-year-old boy was standing up the road
with a hand painted sign, which read 'RADAR TRAP AHEAD.'
The officer then found a young accomplice down the road with a sign reading
'TIPS' and a bucket full of money.
(And we used to just sell lemonade!)



BEST
A young woman was pulled over for speeding.
As a NZ Policeman walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket
book, she said, 'I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Policeman's
Ball.'
He replied, 'NewZealand Policemen don't have balls.'
There was a moment of silence while she smiled, and he realized what he'd
just said.
He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left.

She was laughing too hard to start her car.

How's the kid collecting the money if the cars are speeding?

The kid collecting money was positioned after the speed trap, so the motorists were traveling slower than they were before.

Though they were probably still traveling at a decent speed, upon seeing the "Tips" sign they probably slowed down or even paused a moment to tip the youngster.

Great story! :)
