Unmarked Ford Explorer

Post by levi » Thu Sep 28, 2006 6:18 pm

I saw an Unmarked 4-door Explorer (and by unmarked, I mean a very normal civilian looking SUV with a luggage rack and normal trim). It looked like a 2005 or 2006. He was pulling over some SUV that flew past me yesterday on 94 between St.Paul and Mpls. The cop was in dark blue Explorer with tinted windows in back so you couldn't see the lights mounted in the rear window. Some very small front lights were mounted in the grill, and flashers in the parking lights and headlights and a couple other flashers were on the flip side of the sun visors.

I saw him pull the guy over, then he got out of the Explorer to approach the car. He was a younger, kinda tallish, Aisian guy dressed in 'plain-clothes.
So, if you are driving in your car, and an aisian kid in an explorer pulls up and wants to race... just say no!!

I just thought i'd share with you all so you could watch out for it while driving.

thanks for the info!

Racing Explorers?? This is like beating a child... Why would you do that in the 1st place? ;)

2 tickets ago I had a speeding ticket on 494 in a construction area (ouch)
I got pulled over because I passed about the same described Explorer.
The cop wasn't asian, though... He turned the disco-lights on only after chasing me for about 3-4 miles (I thought the guy followed me just being pissed because I cut him off pretty bad).

I've seen unmarked cops in a Ranger pick-up truck and even in a Windstar minivan...

I am always cautious when I see a suspicious Ford-made vehicles...
I dream of owning a house only because it comes with a garage.

yeah north ave is a bad place to speed, raced a WS6 on there with my bike at North and County Farm, started slowing down at about 120 right before the hill and there was a cop on the other side, CLOSE
