TRP. D.L. Litaker was very kind to me today when he pulled me over for speeding in Gaston County. Our conversation was one of mutual respect and conducted in a gentlemenly fashion. There was no lecture and no condescending attitude. He explained to me that there had been numerous complaints on that road about speeding motorcycles (enough to warrant him staking it out) and to take it easy. He then sent me on my way with a kind wave and a written warning. I thought I was getting a court date for sure as he obviously had me (there was no denial on my part). So, a big :thumb for trooper Litaker and thanks.
