I'm not sure if I'm going to get in trouble for this...

Earlier, when I was on my way back to work, I might have had my music on a little too loud (though it felt just like usual for me). I was driving behind a red SUV, we were driving on the left and I noticed it was slowly switching to the right lane. While it was still switching halfway, I noticed a car passing by me on the left side mirror. At first, I thought someone was in a hurry and drove against traffic to pass by us. To my shock, that was a police SUV! That's when I see the police lights and hear a low-volume but still somewhat audible police siren as it passes by. When I looked on the mirror, the cars behind us already switched to right lane. Now I don't know if the cars in front of red SUV were driving on the right lane from the start or did they just switch. But still, it frightened me because I basically refused to make way for an emergency vehicle. Usually I can still hear emergency vehicles' sirens even with my music on. Guess this time was just bad luck or that car's siren wasn't loud enough. But in any case, I hope all I'd get is some cursing and not a ticket. Guess the other people thought I was crazy and/or ******ed.

I have dishonored my family and brought shame to my country...

Most policemen (at least where I am) are pretty good at dealing with people who are just being a little stupid/oblivious. Don't worry about it too much, but turn that music down a bit and make a mental note that you need to be more aware of your surroundings!

And that's why one should not listen to music while drriving... At least not too loudly or with headphones/earplugs on.

It gave you a good scare and embaressment tho and that is punishment enough I think. Dont beatb yourself up over it, just be mindful of this next time.

I have countless bad experiences listening to loud music years back, especially when using headphones. So, when I need to pay attention to my surrounding, I would not play music. If I do, it won't be loud.

well if you're black in america probably death about 51% of the time as is the minimum for any interaction whatsoever w/ the police whilst being recklessly African American in the USA, otherwise in America you're probably fine, varies on a case-by-case basis in other ****hole countries.

seriously tho, I have never NOT HEARD a police siren when I was within 300 yards of one, they tend to have in my experience the opposite problem from being too quiet.

Weren't you getting a ticket even if you did notice the police lights, though? If not, I'm genuinely curious what was the cited offense was.

..... low volume?

a police siren? LOW volume?
don't stand next to a fire truck.... or you'll lose your ear drums without knowing it.
that's IF you hear the fire truck coming, at all.
go have your hearing checked out!

Holy cow... work is demanding and I'm back in college. I'm kind of scared of my dad right now after the incident, but at least I don't live with him all the time. Anyway, working on Fandom Scouts and my FNAF character set. The FNAF sprites are actually going to be used in the game... unfortunately the enemy sprites are FNAF World traces, so no sharing those.
The honeymoon period is over with Cyberpunk 2077, It sadly doesnt live up to the hype, pretty graphics arent everything (especially when I cant even do something as simple as changing the radio station over!). Replaying Breath of the wild has reminded me what a good game really looks like, plus that one has good glitches!....
