That reminds me of a couple of stories I read in the New York Times years ago. First one: in New York, a motorcycle cop (they handled highway situations) pulled over a motorist who was going 70 miles an hour in a 50MPH zone and wanted to know what was the big rush. The motorist explained that he had been listening to Beethoven's 7th symphony on the radio. The cop happened to know the piece, but he wanted to know what that had to do with the driver going 20 miles over the speed limit. The driver explained that when one is listening to, or singing or whistling or humming, the last movement of the symphony it's impossible to drive at a moderate speed---and he whistled the first few bars of that movement to demonstrate. The officer thought a moment and then said "All right, we'll let it go, but watch it next time, will you?"
The second incident occurred in Detroit. A woman was pulled over for speeding, and it turned out that she had several other violations---broken taillight, expired registration, failure to signal a turn. The officer started to write a ticket, but ran into trouble---it seems that this driver had one of those seemingly unpronounceable last names, a whole string of consonants ending in "ski", and the cop ruined four attempts to write her a ticket! Finally, with a sigh of resignation, he closed the ticket book and told her, "All right, we'll let it go this time, but don't ever let it happen again, and be sure to renew your registration and get those lights fixed!"
