Fast drivers who get a speeding ticket in Contra Costa County, Calif., may want to fight that ticket -- not only to keep their driving record clean, but to get a free lunch at a restaurant near the courthouse.

The Buttercup Grill & Bar in Walnut Creek, Calif., only steps from Walnut Creek Superior Court, is having an "Innocent Until Proven Hungry" month in May and is giving a free lunch to anyone found innocent of traffic violations at the courthouse.
