PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (WHDH) — A Florida woman went to court over a ticket regarding her unique pickup truck.
Judy Jones drives a pickup truck covered in images of Jesus and other biblical scenes. Jones said she has had the truck for 10 years and has never gotten in trouble for it, until she was pulled over recently by Florida Highway Patrol.
The trooper had a problem with the “What would Jesus do?” phrase written on her windshield, saying it is against the law to have writing blocking the driver’s view. Jones ended up with a ticket and took her fight to court, saying the lettering does not get in her way.
The judge let Jones off with a warning, saying she can have writing on her windshield, as long as she replaces it with something transparent. Jones said she will get it fixed.
“I tell you, I learned my lesson,” said Jones. “I’m so glad that God touched the judge’s heart.”
