Sorry for the blurry photo...chalk another one up for the SC DMV.
I don't think I mentioned that we had a run in with the law on our way to Chapel Hill a couple of weeks ago, Hank got stopped for speeding just outside the little town of Manning as we made our way toward I-95 on the backroads. It was Independence Day weekend so law enforcement was all over. The very pleasant deputy sheriff came up to the car and indicated that Hank was rolling along at 68 miles per hour in a 55 mile zone. OOPS.
We were in my car, which has the public education plate shown above. I just got the plate with my new car in February. Hank handed over his license, registration, and proof of insurance and we waited. As we sat there, I mentioned that several co-workers had told me that they'd gotten out of tickets because of the education plate. Hank though it was just an urban myth.
After a few minutes, the deputy walked back up and said, Which one of you is the educator? I gave a little wave. He went on, When I saw that plate, I said to myself, I can't give THESE folks a ticket, so I'm just going to give you a warning this time. But you need to be careful this weekend. The crazy drivers are out early today.
Hank promised to be more careful and as we drove away he said, Whew...I've got to get one of those plates for my truck!
I'm not sure that he learned his lesson...
