Wis. sheriff pulls over Weinermobile, fans relish the jokes
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office used a photo of the unusual traffic stop as an opportunity to educate the public on the state's Move Over Law
New York Daily News
WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. — This bologna has a first name, and if it’s not careful, it’ll have a mugshot too.
The driver of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile learned on Monday that just because you’re famous and shaped like a hot dog, that doesn’t give you a free pass to break the law in the state of Wisconsin.
The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office tweeted out an image of a cop pulling over the iconic Wienermobile, which they said happened because it wasn’t following the state’s Move Over Law. That’s the law that compels drivers to give a vehicle with its emergency lights flashing an extra lane of space, regardless of what kind of meat their car looks like. If that driver isn’t familiar with other rules of the road, now would be a good time to ketchup.
Fans on Twitter relished the opportunity to serve up a pun.
