I have this book. The title is: "A speeder's guide to avoiding ticket's" by
Sgt. James Eagan. Interesting book, but unfortunately it doesn't help me. I
can't lie, cry on demand or dress as a nun, so I sit quietly when stopped,
don't argue or beg for forgiveness. I just get my ticket and say "thank you"
to the officer.
