Some cops...

Should be a little more understanding. For a woman in her position, $123 is NOT a small amount. Honestly... *eye roll* A warning would have been sufficient.

TAMPA, Fla. - Gina Boyd's day already had soured when her 3-year-old daughter began vomiting in her Dodge Caravan. Then she got a traffic ticket. Boyd, 27, got a $123 citation from a Hillsborough County deputy on Monday after she made an improper U-turn to attend to her vomiting daughter.Boyd is a stay-at-home mother of three whose husband is in the Army. He is currently serving in Iraq. Boyd realizes she violated the law but wished the deputy had exercised discretion upon seeing why she had made the improper turn.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said Boyd committed an illegal U-turn and got a citation for it.
