Another Tip-o-the-Day

Let me ask you a question. What part of telling the nice Officer that stopped you for speeding that you are on medication seems like either: a) a good idea or b) a legitimate defense for speeding?

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say when a doctor prescribes medication he does not say, “Now this is going to make you feel a bit drowsy, so go ahead and pick your speed up while you’re driving. Although you are drowsy, your perception/reaction time is oddly heightened. Weird, right?”

Some knucklehead lady actually used the medication excuse with me yesterday. I said something to the effect of, “So, you want me to arrest you for driving under the influence is what you’re telling me right now?” (Don’t worry, she wasn’t deuce…but that doesn’t mean I can’t have my fun, now does it?)
