Outrage: Driver Fights Traffic Ticket Using Morning Sickness As An Excuse

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Australian driver says she was `shocked` to be fined $366 for her unfortunate choice of streets to pull over when she felt the need to vomit.

It seems the street she had turned on is closed during afternoon rush hour to discourage motorists from using it as a shortcut." UPI

The 36-year-old woman, who gave her name only as "Natalie" is pregnant and had to pull over to vomit. The pregnant woman argues that she should have received a warning based on common sense and compassion. What she is really saying is that based on her gender she should have received special treatment.

If a dude pulled over to a side street that was blocked off and explained to the officer, " I had to pull over and hurl, I ate a bad pizza.", the officer would laugh at him and issue him a ticket.

Justice is blind and shouldn`t be able to notice the difference between a pregnant woman and a dude with a beer belly. Natalie should man up, pay the fine and stop whining. Australia is a rough and tumble country, wimps and whiners receive no sympathy.
