Yes, Arizona has jumped up a few notches in my book.
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will invoke the state’s “stupid motorist law” for the first time, after a Cave Creek man drove around traffic barricades and tried to cross a flooded street last week in his Hummer.
Of course, this is the part that’s most puzzling to me:
If he is found guilty of the charge in Cave Creek Municipal Court, he will be prosecuted under the state’s stupid motorist law, which was passed in 1995 and requires drivers to reimburse the state for the cost of rescues.
It’s taken them 10 years to find a motorist stupid enough to prosecute? You’ve gotta be kidding me…
