In 1983 I was getting out of work and just felt I had to get away from traffic . So, when I was pulling away from traffic on 295, I stepped on the gas and moved to the far left lane and floored it. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a state trooper coming up behind me and pulled me over. As I was fumbling to get my paperwork together, Trooper Negron said”Who do you think you are Mario Andretti? I started laughing and said I am sorry. Trooper Negron went back to his car and came back with a warning ticket and said slow down. I still have that ticket.
