If someone is stopped by the police for speeding, and I am talking about it later that day, which is the best option:
He was stopped because he:
- was driving too fast
- had been driving too fast
- drove too fast?
I know the past continuous is used for an action going on for some time in the past, the past perfect continuous for an action happening before another action in the past and the past simple for something happening in the past, but I would like to know if all three are possible, or not.
