Local speed traps

I mentioned to my kids a local news story that said that the local police had received grants to buy radar equipment so that they could set up speed traps on the 2 main streets in town.

My 6-year-old said, "Does that mean that we have to stay home?"

No, I explained that it merely meant that I might have to drive more slowly. If I get caught speeding, then I might get a ticket and have to pay a fine or appear in court.

She then said, "And then we'd have to live at Mom's?"

Sigh. I had to tell her that traffic court has nothing to do with family court.
