It's amazing how many people stopped for speeding are arrested for something else. Not too smart if you're carrying drugs or have a warrent out for you.

What a douchebag like Rick Barba. That's awesome! Avoid Barba Concrete (Rick Barba) out of Frankfort/New Lenox. He poured my neighbors drive last October and it cracked in several places and sinking in many others. He is all about quantity not quality. Beware!
