The laws of Physics are about as far over Loco Laura's head as the
traffic laws are. IOW, we are talking Voyager I heights here...

Ever watch "World's Wildest Police Videos," or similar shows that show
up on Spike or CourTV? Everynow and then they show what happens when
some inattentive driver clobbers a police car that has pulled someone
over to the emergency lane. Now, if drivers on the freeway have a hard
time seeing one of those rolling light shows on the emergency lane, care
to take odds on them seeing a bicycle there?

I think that Loco Laura revels in its idiocy.

Aunt Judy defends a known *drunk driver*:
"Almost all vehicle 'accidents' are due to driver
recklessness but the Chappaquidick incident is one
instance where it may really have been no ones
fault except the idiot who built the bridge."
