Sounds like an episode of ABC wondersuck Home Improvement.

Would any insurance company sell auto insurance for a modified 1971 lawnmower?

"Hutson says the steering mechanism on the 1971 mower had been altered to more easily make left turns. It didn't turn well at all to the right."

Is this going to turn into a Honda bashing thread?

was there a big number 3 painted on the side?

Is this the first lawnmower-driving fool to get a police citation wherein alcohol was not a factor?

It looks like the mower was set up NASCAR-style. She should have opted for the F1 setup instead.

Bob Onisdik: You beat me to it. Maybe see was entering it into on of those racing mower competitions. Real big deal for trailer trash.

/Hey I live in a mobile home damnit..
//No riding lawn mower yet.

George Jones once drove his mower in search of a drink after Tammy Wynette took the car keys away. Alcohol involvement? You betcha.

I drive a car all the time, and I don't have lawnmower insurance

Should be covered by homeowners insurance if not licensed by any governmental agency

You mean Trailer Insurance, right?

Well she got off light compared to what could have happened. She could have tipped over into a pond and drown.
2006-09-22 12:06:01 PM  
Hang on, she crashed said lawnmower into a Van and broke her leg?

How fast was she going, my ride along doesn't go that fast... I could probably run faster. How did this happen...

She shouldn't been charged for not having insurance, more like not having any common sense.

I think the proper term is either mobilehomeowner's insurance or manufacturedhomeowner's insurance.

Can we please ask Little Richard to interpret her plight for our amusement?

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: /MASHED PA-TAY-TAS!

I love that commercial.

/Burt Bacharach one is scary
//Movie announcer guy pretty much sucks too
///Charo one is decent

mullet insurance should be mandatory
2006-09-22 12:40:51 PM  
Was she at least smart enough to turn off the PTO?

My guess is over 50 y/o. Who else drives around the world to the left without signaling?

/Somebody call Hank Hill

My dad used to drive his lawnmower drunk all the time. Never crashed, though. Never got a ticket. And coincidentally, saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico.

Maybe it looked like this:
Shameless plug for my racing mower :)
2006-09-22 01:42:41 PM  
Can you even get vehicle insurance on a lawnmower? Wouldnt that be covered under your homeowners insurance?
2006-09-22 03:42:42 PM  

The best bet is to shop around for an umbrella policy that covers "Stupid".

She needs a paddlin'.

Was she married to the naked guy that got trapped on the rocks during high tide the other day?
