My neighbor got hit by a woman driving an SUV, who was speeding and ran a stop sign. My neighbor and his son only had minor injuries, but the lady in the SUV didn't get a scratch. My neighbor recalls the conversation between the officer on the scene and the lady:
Officer: "You know that there's a stop sign there. You ran that, plus you were speeding."
Lady: "Well where I'm from (same state) we don't have stop signs like that."
Officer: "What, big red ones that have the word 'STOP' printed on it?"
Lady: "Well I couldn't see the stop sign."
Officer: "Mam, there were two warning signs prior to the intersection. I guess you don't have those where you come from, either?"
Officer: "I'm going to issue you a citation for speeding and running a stop sign....."
I'm just curious, how many of you out there don't know what a stop sign looks like? BTW, most of the women that I know are good drivers, so please don't kill the messenger.
