The gas-pump girl of Virginia

Every gas pump in Virginia bears a decal with a menacing young trooper and a picture of a driver's license, with the warning that driving off without paying for the case can result in losing your driver's license. The photograph on the fake driver's license is of an actual employee of the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, the same woman who put out this press release about the program, and she is known to her friends as "the gas-pump girl," as reported here in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
