Cop Catches Commuter Cruisin’

A Maryland woman received a very unusual “speeding” ticket.

Local Maryland NBC affiliate, News4 reported that the woman was driving 63 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone. She was driving on Interstate 95.  Read more at:

Police say the reason they ticketed her was that she was driving in the left lane reserved for speedier commuters.

“[I was] really shocked,” she told the station. “I thought, ‘Oh my God, you’ve got to be kidding me.'”

Then again, commuters who get annoyed by someone hogging the right lane might salute the ticket.

The woman explained that the area was experiencing heavy winds at the time and she was only driving under the speed limit as a safety precaution. “Sometimes when it’s dangerous, you have to do what you can to stay safe,” she said.

She has one ally on her side: the local branch of AAA.

“The reason [the ticket] is silly is because it’s sending the wrong message,” said John Townsend of AAA Mid-Atlantic. “And that message is, ‘We will tolerate you driving at more than the speed limit, but it you drive below the speed limit, then you’re penalized for that.'”


A woman was driving too slow,

In MD, we thought you should know.

She was charged a large fee,

For doing sixty three,

It was sixty five there don’t you know.

Leave the driving to us.

Google will start testing its newest development (self driving cars) in Nevada. They will be the first licensed automated vehicles in the U.S.

I can see it now. As we’re going down the road, a computer voice will yell:

“Will you kids stop arguing back there?”

“Stop it or I’ll turn this car around and we’ll go right home.”

“You should have gone to the bathroom before we left.”

“I’m never using Google Maps again.”

“I don’t need to stop and ask for directions. I know how to get there.”


Personally, I hope the program knows when I want to take a restroom break.


Google has got a new plan,

For a self driving car or a van;

Nevada said sure,

If it’s really secure,

If it’s bad we will put out a ban.
