Fined for Not Seeing Fire Hose
For driving over a fire hose in South Anniston, Ala., a motorist was hailed before the police court justice.
“Judge,” he said, “I have lived in the country all my life, and I never saw a fire hose before.” He thought a pipe was laying in the road and therefore he believed that he was in his right in driving over it.
“Five dollars and costs,” said the judge.
