A woman in California, who claimed to be in a rush to help her sick mom, racked up a remarkable three speeding tickets in less than an hour. Upon being stopped for the third time, authorities arrested her.

Police said that two of the times she was caught, she was traveling more than 100 MPH and claimed to have no idea that she was speeding. She has already paid more than $400 in fines and still faces additional penalties.

      If your mother is that sick, dial 911. Especially if traveling at 100mph takes you over an hour to get there. Bet her mom isn't ill at all. Just a ruse to get out of a ticket.

      When my mother was in the hospital, near death, I rushed to the hospital, but I may have been confused, and was scared for sure. A cop stopped me and when I told him, my mother was in intensive care... he just waved me on and told me to slow down and be careful. I think he may have followed me there, because the hospital was less than half mile further. It's really kind of a blur.

      was her mom really sick or was it that she actually found some guy that wanted sex with her and was in a rush before the man changed his mind? lol

      I thought this was my wife. She blew through a radar trap on her way home for lunch, got stopped and cited. Blew through same radar trap again 30 minutes later on her way back to work and got cited again. On the way home from work that night she got stopped and cited a third time for speeding. About $1500 in fines, insurance shot up, and she had to go to DMV for a hearing to beg them not to suspend her license for a year. She was put on DMV probation and actually slowed down . . . until probation was over. That was several years ago, and it is still a good card to play when she complains about my driving.

      A fellow in Oregon just did the same thing — on his way to court for a meth charge. It cost him $2,000. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/09/3-speeding-tickets-in-an-hour-jose-romero-valenzuela_n_1334390.html

      AOL says "She had no idea what she was doing was illegal." According to this page, she "had no idea that she was speeding." Big difference. I think people know speeding is illegal. Whether they know they're speeding or not is another matter. Love that AOL news stuff.

      If true, would have been nice if the Officer provided an escort? Sometimes you have to wonder just what exactly "serve and protect" means. Serve must mean tickets, seems like courtesy and assistance are no longer part of the job?

      Did anyone bother to check on her mom -- to ensure that all was okay? Speeding at such a rate was not okay but seriously, have we become so jaded and unsympathetic that not ONE cop could see if the mother actually needed assistance? Maybe offer to send a cop - to the mother's home for assistance.
