CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Punta Gorda woman claims her faith got her flagged for a traffic ticket.
Judy Jones, the president of Bread of Life Mission homeless shelter, was cited for a "What Would Jesus Do?" sticker on her front windshield by a Florida Highway Patrol officer.
Jones told Fox 4 the sticker has been on her Ford pick-up for 3 years without incident.
"I think this officer looked at the name of Jesus and thought I was a quack, but I'm going to quack all up in the courtroom and tell it just like it is," said Jones.
The 'WWJD' decal was a gift, along with a complete wrap on her truck which shows a number of biblical images. "I was only stopped by this one officer a demon from hell probably, " said Judy Jones."
The citation comes with a $100 fine, which Jones says would take away from the resources she has to help the homeless at her shelter.
"He charged me money for a ticket that I can not afford. We have to use that money to buy pinto beans and neck bones. We don't get any funding here, how would these people eat and everything," said Jones.
According to Florida statute 316.2952, windshield decals are only legal if they are transparent and do not obstruct the driver's view.
"I'm going to fight this, I don't think it's fair," said Judy. "I have not broken the law. If I had broken the law I could see me paying this $100.
A FHP spokesperson told Fox 4 the citation Jones received had nothing to do with the content of the sign.
Jones will be contesting the citation in court later this month.
