Will I get booked ?
On the way home today I had a run in with a suped up subaru.
Stoped at the lights was this white moded liberty a persian green ED or maybe EB and me. I took off at normal acceleration from the lights and heard the subi's turbo spooling up and then I decided to see how good it was so I punched the accelarator and as I was only doing about 40 it kicked down to first and took off. We were side by side with the subi, both of us leaving the ED behind(who was also giving it a bit). Quickly approaching the next set of red lights we hit the brakes and pulled up behind the traffic.
As we take off I noticed the ED getting very close to the side of my car and eye balling me. I looked over only to see an off duty police officer. He pointed to the police patch on his shoulder and then at me, then he took off after the subi who was weaving through the traffic.
I wouldn't have been going too fast as I hit the brakes as I went from first gear to second, first gear revs out to around 75km. I was on plenty road in the 80km stretch.
Now my question is.
can an off duty police officer report you if he thinks you were speeding even though he was off duty, had no rader and has no proof ?
As I said I didn't go over the speed limit so I was not speeding, but I did accalerate hard. I did rev out first gear, but there was no wheel spin.
The cop himself pushed his car aswell.
