While driving home from the golf course, my mother-in-law got a traffic ticket for making a left turn too close to an oncoming car. Fervently disagreeing with the officer’s judgment, she contested the ticket in court, claiming that the other car had been at least 150 yards away.
"But how can you be so sure about the distance?" the judge asked.
"Your Honor," my mother-in-law replied, "that car was exactly a seven-iron shot away from mine."
With that, the judge held up his hand. "I’ve heard enough," he declared. "Case dismissed."
