    Mother punishes her kid busted by the cops doing 107 mph in a 55 mph zone by making hold an "I was stupid" sign

    A Florida teenager faced an unusual punishment after police caught him driving more than 100 mph.

    Adam Clark was pulled over going 107 mph in a 55-mph zone; neither the police nor his mother were pleased.

    Adam's mother, Heidi Wisniewski, not only took his car away, but also made him a sign to show outside of his school every morning and every afternoon.

    He was forced to hold a sign reading, "I was STUPID. I drove over 100 mph and got caught. Thank God! I could have killed me and my friends."

    Adam said he got some strange looks and laughs from classmates at Orlando's Merritt Island High School, but said he accepts his punishment.

    Despite the humiliation, he said he isn't mad at his mother.

    "She was mad," Adam said. "She gave me the silent treatment. But I think I deserve my car getting taken away and everything."

    Other students laughed, but said they also understood the punishment.

    "This kid here, he's lucky," said Avery Brinson, a student at Merritt Island High School.

    "He's lucky the cops seen him speed before he did something bad that he'd really regret."

    Wisniewski said her son would be in front of the school before and after school for a month, and added that she didn't think the punishment is over the line.

    "I love my son very much," she said. "I think more parents need to be tougher on their children."

    Most students agreed with her, and said the punishment made them think.

    "Well, people should definitely think about it, I mean, because it's true. It happens all the time," one student said.

    Students said a month of embarrassment was far better than the alternative.

    "I think that's a lot better than, you know, killing somebody," said Kamron Clark, a student at Merritt Island High School.

    Adam said the punishment worked.

    "I've learned my lesson," Adam said.

    Love it. Of course you would have to actually have parents that care about what their kids do in order for that to work! Too bad it seems most don't seem to.

    Awhile back I was working a detail and saw some kids driving around with kids hanging all over the outside of the car and generally driving HUA. Stopped to ticket but realized I knew the young lady driving the car. Instead of ticketing her, I called her mom at almost midnight to ask her if she knew where her daughter was and to explain why I had pulled her over. Mom was NOT happy..which of course made me HAPPY. let us just say that the punishment she was going to get at home was much better then anything I could have ticketed her for.

    I remember when I was young and dumb, I had a 1971 Dodge Demon in Canary Yellow with a 340 6 pack under the hood. A friend of mine had an old souped up Catalina and we were at a light on a lightly traveled no traffic having four lane round. We squared off I took off hit 130, and noticed the flashing wig wags in my mirror. I stopped handed my license, the coppers happened to know my parents, they whooped my ass on the street, and told me to take off. I figured since the coppers beat my arse that I would get off of them calling my parents. I got to my dads house and the first thing he asked was if there was anything he needed to know. Of course I said no. I got my ass whooped again, for lying and drag racing. Live and learn huh?

    Ahhh, instant justice. The days when you'd do something bad, and no only would your parents wear your ass out, so would all the neighbors.

    Good for that mom. Me and a co-worker nailed a teenager last summer with a bunch of tickets for stuff instead of charging him with reckless driving or fleeing to elude. He was turned over to his dad, who stated that he would handle it. A few months later I work a crash involving the same kid driving stupid, almosting totaling a brand $50,000.00 SUV owned by an off duty out of town cop here on vacation. He gets cited by me for careless driving and the judge hammers him in court. Now the dad is mad at me and files a complaint about my partner back in July and another deputy who directed traffic for me on the crash scene and me. He said we were "discourteous" towards his son. He must be out of his freakin mind. He was mad because I asked him what would it take to keep his son from killing someone next time. I would be pounding my son's ass for driving that way the first time and there would not have been a second time because he would not have a car. What a nimrod. That guy should take some lessons from that mother.

    Good for mom! We have a judge who has made people wear a sandwich board and walk the square.


    Back in my teens I couldn't do anything without my dad finding out. Hell half the time anyone with a truck similar to mine got a free pass because the same amish guy automatically. Would call my dad thinking it was me.
