A motorist was driving along the freeway late at night. There were no other cars about, so he put his foot down and was doing 'km/h when he was pulled over by a traffic cop.
The cop got off his bike, strolled across and said: "Look sir, this is the end of my shift for the day and I just want to get home for supper. I don't want to do all the paperwork involved in arresting you, so if you can give me just one good excuse for speeding I'll forget about it."
"Certainly, officer," said the motorist. "You see, last week my wife ran off with a traffic cop and when I saw your blue light in my rear-view mirror I thought for one dreadful moment you were trying to catch me to give her back."
The cop put away his note-book and said: "Have a safe drive home."
