This weekend I took a trip by car to New Hampshire.
New Hampshire is a rural state and there are a lot of people on motorcycles.
I saw a lot of bikers being "pulled over" by cops for speeding.
Today's phrasal verb is "pull over"
Here is a sample sentence:
This woman just got pulled over because she was going 20 MPH over the speed limit.

Meaning: This verb means that someone asks you to stop your car and to park it on the side of the road (usually a cop). It can also mean that you do the action without being asked to do it.
Grammar: This verb is used in the active voice: "The cop pulled me over because my headlights were off" or in the passive voice: "I got pulled over by the cop for speeding."
Examples: "If you get pulled over for speeding you have to pay a fine." or "How many times in your life have you been pulled over?"
