Erin Jackman, Porter | "No, I do not. I do go too fast sometimes and litter out of my car window, too."
Nancy Ellis, Munster | "Absolutely. I'm a role model. I'm the principal at Frank Hammond Elementary School."
Ryan Forek, Merrillville | "I would hope so. It might be there is some obscure law that I don't know about and I violated it without knowing."
