This New Zealand woman faked labor to get her friend out of a speeding ticket.

I wouldn`t fake labour because I got busted for doing something illegal; however if I was 36 weeks pregnant, it was a hot June day and some idiot was trying not to make eye contact with me because he doesn`t want to give up his seat on the train, I might lean over a little bit, clutch my belly and say ``Oooof``.

Well I think it's ill advised simply because as the woman found it, if you don't come out with a baby in a few hours, the jig is up.

I don't think you did anything wrong.

If I was in the car with someone who was driving 90 mph, that would probably SEND me into labor.
