Justice Court Judge Rickey Thompson spoke to community members about things that can happen while driving a car that will land them in his courtroom.
Thompson said to make sure your insurance and driver’s license are up to date before driving. He also reminded his audience to make sure their car is in working condition with an inspection sticker and license plate.
Police Chief Anthony Anderson urged those in attendance to always wear their seat belts and to play their music at a respectful level.
“A lot of times, it is easy to stereotype someone, but if you respect the laws, we will respect you, and we promise not to stereotype you,” Anderson said on behalf of his police department.
The Rolling ’60s car club showed off their restored cars from the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Younger community members brought cars with bright paint and big wheels. Anderson judged the best in show prize for the old school and the new school contestants.
A 1993 Mercury Marquis with an Indianapolis Colts paint job was the winning new school car.
The winning entries for the old school car show were a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle painted red and a 1964 Chevrolet Impala painted tan.
