About Judge Motorman
After getting pulled over by Officer Cosgrove (Jon Korkes) for speeding 34 miles in a 30 mph zone. Maude adamantly refuses to believe she was speeding at all, as she insists to contest the citation and fight it in traffic court after he informs her of her right to do so.
Arthur, who said he had connections with a judge, which turned out to be Motorman, in the traffic court that could get her speeding ticket "fixed", and also after both Walter and Florida insisted that she do so, is able to, and that's what happens as Motorman, who's the presiding judge in her hearing, who's acquainted with the "connection", a friend of a friend of Arthur's who knows him, dismisses the case as a "favor" to the friend of Arthur's friend.
