It was only a matter of time. With the prevalence of in-car monitors for playing DVDs, you had to know some bozo would pop in some porn to keep him entertained during his commute. A Tampa Bay TV station has reported that one Tracy Pope was pulled over in Aiken, South Carolina for just such an offense. While our understanding of the legal use of porn in private is touchy at best, it seems kind of obvious that sharing your taste in blue movies with the rest of the drivers around you will only attract the men in blue.

Officers said that Pope was pulled over while playing an X-rated DVD on his in-car video system, which amounts to a felony disseminating or promoting obscenity charge based on the argument that minors could have easily been exposed to the porn by looking into the vehicle through the uncovered windows. The article also doesn't mention if the DVD was playing on an aftermarket system in the dash like the Pioneer AVIC-N3 or -Z1, in which case the system would've been illegally modified to play video while the car was in motion, or if it was on another screen not visible to the driver. Police also seized several other DVDs including the one playing at the time of arrest. Please folks, no "both hands on the wheel, " or "stick shift" comments.
