A motorist going 50 mph above the speed limit had a ready made excuse for police officers: she was heading to a court appearance for speeding.
The incident played out near Thief River Falls, with the Minnesota State Patrol saying they caught the female driver going 110 mph in a 60 mph zone.
"Female said she was late for court," The State Patrol noted on Twitter. "Wait for it … her court appearance was for another speeding ticket."
"Don’t do this. Please," it added.
Drivers in Minnesota face losing their license for 6 months or more if they're caught traveling at more than 100 mph under state law.
Right now the State Patrol and 300-plus other Minnesota law enforcement agencies are amidst a crackdown on speeding.
It comes after 2018 was the deadliest year for speed-related deaths on Minnesota roads since 2008, with 113 people dying in speed-related crashes.
That's the first time the number has exceeded 100 in 10 years, with 125 dying in speed-related deaths in 2008.
The extra enforcement will run until July 21.
