Driving for Two

Here's an issue I hadn't thought of: expectant mom Candace Wilkinson of Arizona trys to dodge HOV restrictions by claiming her fetus as a passenger. The judge doesn't go for it, and fines her $360.
'This isn't the first time the same police sergeant who ticketed Wilkinson has had a case like this.
Phoenix Police Sgt. Dave Norton said, "The previous one was a whole lot less pregnant than Miss Wilkinson, and to follow her philosophy would require officers to carry guns, radios and pregnancy testers, and I don't think we want to go there."'
The next case will, no doubt, involve multiple personalities.

Hah, I wish I had thought of that back when I was commuting.

With a name like Hyde it would have been a natural!

That is a good one.. I'm pretty sure the cops would have been able to tell when Dr. Jekyll had the wheel.

For the love of God, don't tell Bob Marshall.

Why not? If you are pro-life you SHOULD be against driving while pregnant.

I am prolife, but Bob will put in a bill that backs the position, recognized the unborn as passengers, and every lady heading into the HOV lanes will stuff a towel under his blouse. And one day the next Supreme Court nominee will have to endure windy speeches from leftwing Senators on yet another hypothetical....
