Guess My Speed and Give Me a Ticket, In Ohio

Shadowland Re:Next Stop: Murder! (636 comments)

> You'd be surprised how well being civil to them works if you get pulled over.

I had this very experience a couple weeks ago, in Columbus, Ohio (where I live).

I was going about 80-82 mph in a 65 mph zone, and passed a cop without realizing it (it was dark out, with streetlights lit). When he pulled me over, I was polite; he asked me were I was going (to work), and who I worked for. After he ran my license to make sure that I wasn't wanted for anything, or had recent prior speeding tickets, he gave me a warning and let me go on my way. He too was polite to me during our conversation, and I was glad I only got a warning since I wouldn't have been very successful trying to contest a speeding ticket when I was going 15+ mph over the limit.

Granted, I may have been lucky and gotten stopped by a nicer cop, but they are out there.

Paypal Reverses Payments Made To Indians

> Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank ATMs (and maybe some others)

Chase ATMs are also accepting checks without an envelope and scanning them, just like Bank of America and Wells Fargo. From your description, it sounds like Chase is doing almost exactly the same thing (well, the same thing from the point of view of someone using the ATM).
