In court, the judge ruled it as a traffic infraction with no points... View More

In an elementary school the parent pick up line starts to form more than 90 min before the students are released at the end of the day. The line is very long and the PTA has auctioned off the first two spots in the front of the line for the two parents (with the highest bid) to arrive anytime... View More
