Could I get out of a speeding ticket this way?
I have long since returned to the US, but thought this could be of some use in the event of a roadside encounter with the folks in blue.
Say that I get pulled over for speeding. When the cop approaches my window, I just start speaking Icelandic, as if I don't speak any English.
You know, they COULD detain me until they can find an interpreter, but that's going to be a hassle because realistically, Americans who know a single word of Icelandic are going to be hard to come by.
And besides, before they can begin looking for an interpreter, they have to figure out what language I am even speaking to begin with.
Is it more likely that the officer will just think "screw it" and motion for me to be on my way?
