Moron Speeding To Take Wife In Labor To Hospital Slapped With Ticket! Amen!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"New Hampshire State Police said they will not back off a speeding ticket given to a man who was rushing his wife to the hospital while she was in labor.


Police Maj. Russell Conte said John Coughlin was spotted by a trooper driving at more than 100 mph on a 55 mph road at 3:30 a.m. Sept. 18, WMUR-TV, Manchester, N.H., reported Wednesday.


Driving 100 mph on a 55 mph road is insanity, Coughlin is a scofflaw who is guilty of reckless driving and endangering the safety of the public. The cop should be commended for his restraint, Coughlin should have been arrested and taken directly to jail.

A husband taking his pregnant wife to the hospital does not have carte blanche to disregard traffic laws and endanger drivers and pedestrians.

If everyone exceeded the speed limit when they had an emergency, anarchy would prevail on the streets.

I feel sorry for the infant, he is going to be raised by a moron. If the pregnant wife didn`t scream at her husband to slow down she`s a fool also.
