    I agree with you Dee. But why wouldn't the cop go that fast in the first place unless he didn't realize it was a kid.

    Enough is enough of stories like this!! This is a blatant disregard for the LAW..and the KID needs to be PUNISHED! We need a law on the books for cases such as these, especially since it is happening almost every other day it seems. This kid should not be allowed to participate in DRIVERS EDUCATION, and should have to wait until he is 18 yrs of age to receive his drivers license. PERIOD! END of story!
