A man kicks his 9 month pregnant wife out of their house she has no money and her mother lives 5 hours away she has a full tank of gas in her car so she decides to go home to her mother she starts having cramps but figures it's caused from stress so she ignores it. Then the pain becomes unbareable she has no cell phone and she is scared so she starts to drive faster to find a hospital only to find blue lights behind her for speeding she pulls over tries to explain her situation but the cop gets upset with her because he says she was putting her unborn baby's life in danger by speeding so he gives her a ticket and tells her to drive slower but never offers to help her by calling an ambulance or taking her himself, even after she told him she was in labor. So my question do you think the cop was right and just doing his job. I have a small theory maybe women have made that excuse so often that he figured she was lying to get out of a ticket. What is your theory and do you think he was right or wrong.

I think the woman should have got out of the car at the moment she thought she was in labor and knocked on a door and had someone call an ambulance. Also she shouldn't have left her house in the first place. Husband could have left or she could have called someone to pick her up. Every pregnancy book out there tells you to NOT drive during labor. I don't think the woman was thinking clearly. As for the cop, he didn't do his job by calling an ambulance or escorting her to the hospital, but as for the ticket it was his call. In a way I think she needed a ticket for not thinking. If people start thinking labor pains, kidney stones, an appendix about to burst, etc are all justified reasons to speed then the rest of us on the road are in serious danger. Add that to the ppl who are drunk on the roads and the ppl who didn't have a lick of sense in driving to start with and that's a receipe for disaster.
