      So, with you being the good citizen and all, please give us your real name and address so we can make sure that you’re complying with your own rules. I would rather have ma or pa on the road in their Buick or Crown Vic than some boozed-up coal cracker in a Jeep or some stoner in a rice-rocket with a fart can muffler.
