I recently went to traffic school to pay my debt to society for going too fast on the freewaay. The school was put on by the Improv Comedy Club, who supplied a professional comedian to teach the school. Here is his formula for not getting a ticket for running a stop sign: Many people get pulled over for running a stop sign because they don't correctly interpret the letters S-T-O-P when they see them. In order to prevent any further confusion over this matter, I will tell you what they mean. When approaching the intersection, they stand for "Slow To Observe Police." Then, "Slightly Tap Other Pedal." Finally, when it's time to go, "Skid Tires On Pavement."
