Episode 34. You were going too fast


1. Past Continuous | 2. While, Who & When | 3. Using Tenses

SARAH, ANNE and STEVE get pulled over for speeding.
A policeman is following them on a motorbike.

ANNE What’s that?

STEVE It’s the cops!
They pull over, and the policeman approaches.

POLICEMAN Can I see your licence please?

STEVE Here you are. I’m sorry officer, what’s the problem?

POLICEMAN I’m afraid you were travelling at seventy kilometres per hour in a sixty kilometre zone. Also, I see you have a passenger in the back seat who was not wearing a seat belt. Do you know that you must wear a seat belt when you’re travelling in a vehicle, ma’am?

SARAH I’m sorry. I forgot. You see officer, my friend here has been looking for her brother who she hasn’t seen for two years, and we’ve just discovered the address.

STEVE We were driving there when you pulled us over.

POLICEMAN Yes, well, you hear a lot of stories in this job. I haven’t heard that one before.

SARAH But it’s true!

ANNE I’m really sorry. It’s all my fault. I was only thinking about my brother, and now you’re in trouble.

STEVE It’s okay Anne. It was my fault we were going too fast.

POLICEMAN Look, just stick to the speed limit, okay?

STEVE Thankyou officer. Thankyou so much.

POLICEMAN But that’s no excuse for not wearing a seatbelt. Right now be off with you. I hope they find your brother, ma’am.

STEVE Thanks officer.
