A Hysterical Woman In Post Falls

I haven't been pulled over by a traffic cop in years. I remember being pulled over in the Spokane Valley some years back, for speeding slightly. I rarely go faster than 5 mph over the limit. I was given a warning. I was also pulled over in Uniontown, Wash., returning home from my son's JV Coeur d'Alene High Viks football game in Orofino. Again, I was let off with a warning. I received my only speeding ticket when I was 18. All of which brings me to the female driver who went hysterical when she was ticketed by a Post Falls officer around 2:25 p.m. today. Such was the woman's reaction that the patrol cop decided to stay parked behind her until she regained her composure.

Question: How do you react when an officer pulls you over for a traffic offense?
