Driving highways here, three cars is heavy traffic.
Radio blaring.
Suddenly hear a siren in the distance.
Instant foot off the gas.
Check all mirrors. Can’t see them anywhere.
Heart slows down but, siren goes off again.
Foot on brake. Speed dead on.
Turn radio off. Siren stops!

Was a SONG on the radio!


On the country roads here there is very little traffic and I am guilty of enjoying speed.
That made me feel so bad though, taught me a lesson, for sure .. for a while.
I didn’t realise it was song I hadn’t heard before which had a police siren at various parts through it.
It did give me a fright though, thought: ‘Okay, it’s a fair cop. I’m gonna get a ticket for speeding and, boy was I!’

  1. I love it. This made me remember once, when friends from the city were visiting me in Tofino and we drove to the beach – there were two other cars there when we arrived and I groaned, “Oh, it’s PACKED!!!!!” – they looked at me like I was dotty.

  2. Hadn’t had the siren experience
    but have just about fractured a bone or two
    trying to get to my phone when awakened by
    the sound of a phone ringing.
    Of course, there was no missed call message
    and couldn’t figure out who called…
    right now a commercial has a ring tone on it
    like mine. Sigh.
    Enjoyed your posts but
    can imagine the terror and your pulse and
    blood pressure going sky high at the sound.

    Thanks for sharing…

  3. Experiences like that scare the bejeebers out of me. I think I have heard that song as well. Should be illegal. I have also heard sirens in commercials. Should also be illegal.

  8. This just happened to me! Scared the bejesus out of me. Note to song writers: never, never, never put the sound of a siren in your music! I love driving fast with the radio up.
