20. I did this in Illinois once.
Stupid mistake.

There was a line of cars doing 55 in the right hand lane. The limit. I pulled into the passing lane at about 60 to pass. I ended up passing about 10 cars when I saw the police car at the front. I decided not to slow down and go all the way to the back of the line. I passed him too. As I did, his lights went on.

He gave me a break though. Just came up to me asked for my license and said there was no way he was going to let me go because I had passed about 10 other cars behind him.

Verbal warning.
