No driver's license - no ticket

No driver's license - no ticket

When I was in central Florida last week, enjoying 91ยบ F. temps, I heard a story about a deputy who stopped a driver in a small town for rolling through a red light to turn right.

The deputy had approached the driver, who was 86 years old. When he asked for the driver's license, the driver told him that he didn't have one.

"You mean you don't have it with you?"

The driver said that's not what he meant and that he didn't have a license.

"You mean it's suspended or revoked??

The driver said that's not what he meant. He said he'd never had a license.

The deputy asked the driver if he had been driving all those years without a license.

The driver said that was right and that he'd never needed one until then.

The deputy told the driver, "Well, I guess you don't need one now. Have a nice day and be sure to stop at red lights."

The story about that deputy finished with, "How do you ticket an 86-year-old man who had driven that long without a license?"

We need more cops like that deputy!
