Amanda Bynes has finally been taken off the road – and everybody seems to have an opinion about the troubled star, including Lindsay Lohan.

After being ordered by a judge not to drive following a DUI charge and two counts of hit-and-run, Bynes thumbed her nose at authority, continuing to get behind the wheel and driving her car all over Los Angeles. But on Sunday morning, the 26-year-old’s joy riding came to an end when she was pulled over and issued a ticket for driving with a suspended license (a misdemeanor), and watched as her black BMW was impounded on the spot.

It was unclear where Bynes was headed when she was stopped at 8:20 a.m. on Sunday, but she was wearing skin-tight pants and stiletto shoes, and was apparently alone at the time.

Bynes – who has been exhibiting peculiar behavior as of late, reportedly talking to herself while alone in public places – must have known this was coming. Less than a week ago she was photographed driving her trash-strewn BMW while smoking something from a pipe. The series of photos, obtained by TMZ, also showed Bynes exiting a parking lot through the entrance, mere feet from two signs that read “Wrong Way” and “Do Not Enter.” Two days later, and after a judge ordered her to stop driving, she was again behind the wheel and hit a parked car. Police were not involved that time but paparazzi snapped photos of the incident.

One would think Lindsay Lohan, also 26, whose own personal legal troubles have been legendary would zip her lips and steer clear of this Bynes brouhaha. Not a chance. On Sunday night, Lohan weighed in on the “All That” star’s latest run-in with the law, tweeting, “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?"

Of course, what Lohan must have forgotten is that she went to jail after she violated her probation stemming from a DUI conviction. Bynes has not been convicted.

That’s not to say Bynes won’t see time in a jail cell. On September 27, she is due in court to face two charges of hit-and-run. After that, she will be back in front of a judge to deal with her April 6 DUI charge, in which she allegedly rear-ended a police cruiser following a night of clubbing.

Following Bynes' initial DUI arrest, she famously tweeted President Obama and asked for his help in getting her out of her legal troubles, writing, "Hey @BarackObama ... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
