The Pregnant Lady in the HOV Lane is Back!

Remember that pregnant lady who said her unborn baby should count for the HOV lane? It turns out Brandy Bottone actually got a second ticket for doing the same exact thing. Not only that, it was on the same stretch of highway in Texas, and the same exact cop wrote her up. It happened about a month ago — not long before the first ticket was dismissed, and just one day before she had her baby. Brandy plans to fight this one, too, on the premise that Texas law defines personhood as beginning at conception, not birth. She tells Today, “According to my attorney, they will most likely keep on ticketing pregnant women until the law is changed, which won’t happen until after election season is over, most likely.”
