This should go without saying, but ...

If you're going to a traffic court hearing regarding your suspended or revoked driver's license, you really, really should get someone else to give you a ride.

Authorities fed up with illegal drivers in Kane County, IL, set up a sting this week, targeting 38 motorists due to appear in court. Plainclothes officers watched for the defendants to get into vehicles and drive away. Then they radioed to prowling patrol cars, which stopped the miscreants, gave them tickets and towed their cars.

Police cited 10 of the drivers, including one who said he hadn't had a valid driver's license in 27 years.
