Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: There is a rogue panda on a rampage in my town of Flagstaff, Ariz. What precautions are authorities taking and what precautions should I take?

Answer: Contrary to whatever you might have read on a street sign that was altered by hackers, Flagstaff police have confirmed that "citizens can rest assured there are no problems with rogue pandas in the city." (San Francisco ChronicleAriz. street sign prank warns of rogue panda)

2) Question: What is the punishment for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone?

Answer: Loss of your license for 45 days. Possibly worse than that if you are not a famous NASCAR driver. (Deadspin, The Law Took Kyle Busch’s License Away For Doing 128 In A 45 Zone)

3) Question: My tractor-trailer seems to have been moved somewhat from where I left it and has some minor damage. Do you think someone could have taken it for a joyride?

Answer: Or worse. Sometimes people steal tractor-trailers, drive 30 minutes to a sex toy store, drive the stolen tractor-trailer so as to smash through the glass doors of the sex toy store, steal an $800 sex toy that simulates the "lower half of a female body" and then drive the tractor-trailer back to where they stole it from. (FOX8, Robber Uses Semi-Truck to Smash Adult Store and Steal Sex Toy)
