End of September 2012, I offered a DL friend in Portland/OR to drive him home from my motel. At an intersection nearby the motel I run a red light at the left-turn lane for whatever reason and tried to back my car up when I had noticed my mistake. But there was a police car behind my rental car which, of course, immediately turned on the flash lights and siren forcing me to stop on the street. :O
I was in my rental car not only without driver’s license, but also in a quite poopy and smelly diaper which I had loaded hours before in front of my DL friend. I was scared to death and very embarrassed – a real nightmare!!!
When I opened the car window and asked the police officer to maybe go back with me to the nearby motel to pick up my forgotten driver’s license he surprisingly left the whole issue (driving without driver’s license and red light violation) and fortunately warned me ONLY!
Thank God, I didn’t get it – that was a close thing! Obviously he also smelled the poopy odor out of my car window and didn’t want to know more details: “Drive back to your motel to pick up your forgotten license and do whatever you need to do …” 😀
