Officer's note on speeding violation warning makes a woman's day
Not many stories that start with being pulled over for a speeding ticket have a happy ending. However, one involving a woman from South Carolina has an unexpected twist.
Ayla Dyer Hemeon of Georgetown was pulled over for speeding on Sunday while running an errand with her daughter.
She told the officer they were rushing to deliver a carved pumpkin to her parents and her daughter had to get home and work on school assignments.
The officer gave her a warning rather than a ticket, and wrote on the slip, "Thanks for all that you do. You could have spent Sunday alone, but you're spending it helping your parents and daughter. Have a good day."
Hemeon noted in her Facebook post that she "never expected it to say what it did. I can honestly say it made me tear up. This officer made my day."
