Lawyer and Policeman

A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a policeman.

He thinks that he is smarter than the policeman because he is a lawyer, and is certain that he has a better education than any policeman. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the policeman’s expense!!

Policeman says, "Licence and registration, please."

Lawyer says, "What for?"

Policeman says, "You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign."

Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."

Policeman says, "You still didn’t come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please"

Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"

Policeman says, "The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop. That's the law. Licence and registration, please!"

Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my licence and registration, and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."

Policeman says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir."

The Lawyer exits his vehicle.

The policeman takes out his baton and starts beating the lawyer. He says, "Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"
