NICK EICHER, HOST: What a dreadful thing seeing those flashing blue lights in the rearview, but here’s a pullover story where I’m not entirely sure how this driver was able to see well enough to notice.
A Washington state trooper pulled over a driver because of snow on the car and not just snow on the car, but snow covering the entire windshield except for a small corner on the driver’s side.
So the trooper pulled over the driver whose name—mercifully—was not released and wrote a $500 ticket.
You know, police have heard ’em all, they’ve heard every excuse ever dreamed up, but are you ready for this one? The driver says: My windshield wipers weren’t working.
Unbelievable. Can you imagine how many windshield scrapers you can buy for $500? You could pay a neighbor kid to clear your windshield and still come out way ahead.
Just glad there was no accident.
