Police stop is a laugh

Avila BeachJanuary 7, 2014 

I had to laugh about all the concern from Ms. Dorman and Debbie Mitchell regarding the police giving good-driving certificates.

When I was a teenager in Salinas, my girlfriend was returning home after driving her mom to work at the hospital early one morning. She was in her pajamas and had rollers in her hair. A policeman put on his lights and pulled her over. All she could think was, “Oh no, I’m getting a ticket, and I’m in pajamas.” Much to her surprise, she was getting a good-driving certificate. We laughed about this for years.

So instead of being upset, Ms. Dorman should take the $15 and buy food for the Prado Day Center to help feed the homeless.
