Does that count as a traffic offence?
It does actually.
Driving without reasonable consideration for other road users.....that aside they were probably more concerned 1. For your welfare or 2. You weren't drunk.
The same happened to my mum, twice - she still holds it against the local constabulary as some kind of infringement on her civil liberty.
Minumum speed limits are rare, there was none here
I am proud of it of course, just a few words, they realised I was not drunk
The last bit home after a long day, spotted a BX too close behind so I slowed down, turned off, cops must have been behind the BX, they followed me home
