Speed on, speed on
Long before ya know it, you'll be up and gone
Speed on, speed on - Nicky Hopkins
Comes a police report last fall of a Wood County motorist in a lime green sports car stopped for speeding on Hancock County 140.
Now, if I had enough money to buy a sports car, I sure wouldn't be caught dead in a lime green auto, but I digress.
Our speed demon was let off with a warning, which should have been the end of this sad saga.
This poor person informed the investigating sheriff's deputy that, not less than 10 minutes ago, he had been stopped by North Baltimore police for, you guessed it, speeding.
He protested to the deputy that he was "wondering why he was being harassed."
Gee. I don't know. A speeding lime green sports car stopped twice in one day? What were the odds?
Perhaps this complainer should have been ticketed for driving while stupid and have his lime green car confiscated to be spraypainted a decent color, at least.
Or maybe the officer should have given our poor suspect a lime green bicycle.
Let's see, then, if he could get another speeding ticket.
