Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: My buddy and I are both over age 70. We were golfing and I was in the middle of my backswing when some punk teenage kids intentionally blew a loud air horn to startle me. Unacceptable! They ran away but one left his jacket behind and just walked back near us. Do we have a right to give him a few whacks with our metal ball retriever on his backside? Did I mention I was in the middle of my backswing?!
Answer: Sorry, but you do not have that right and might wind up getting yourselves charged with child abuse. (NWF Daily News, Two charged for striking teen with golf ball retrievers)
2) Question: I was charged with going 8 mph over the speed limit. What is that going to cost me?
Answer: $9,000. (Legal Juice, Can A Speeding Ticket For 8 MPH Over The Limit Cost You $9,000?)
3) Question: I was stopped for going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone. What is that going to cost me? Did I mention that I am a County councilmember?
Answer: That will just be a warning for you, councilmember. (WTOP News, Councilwoman stopped going 105 mph in a 55 mph)
