Staring down the business end of a handgun isn’t my idea of a great wake-up call. Particularly when it’s firing radar waves and I’m driving a bright orange Viper. Especially when there’s a trigger-happy officer of the law on the other end of the weapon who is variously, and wrongly, accusing me of being a criminal, a thief and a liar while fumbling for his phone to call a truck to tow away the Viper…
Nope, that’s not how I like to start the day.
