Andrew Bamberg ran a stop sign in Redwood City, California. He was sentenced to a year in jail.

There's more to the story, of course. Bamberg got a ticket in March 2005 for running the sign. In traffic court, he tried to deceive the judge by showing photos of a different intersection that has no stop signs. When Traffic Commissioner Susan Greenberg told Bramberg she planned to visit the intersection, Bramberg actually swapped the street signs with those from another intersection.

His legal gymnastics earned him a year in jail, which the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco upheld this week.

Read more in the Chronicle. And if you want avoid him in traffic, here's Bramberg's photo.

Wow, if this dummy gets a year in jail, I wonder how much time that Santa Clara County Sheriff will do for crossing a double yellow and killing two cyclists on the other side of the road!

Oh, that's right. None.
