Bad Excuse of The Day, April 01

Straight from AP... How not to drive, OR get out of a speeding ticket.

SALEM, Ore. – Authorities arrested a woman accused of driving 103 mph with her 10-year-old grandson in the car. Sheriff's Lt. Sheila Lorance said Deputy Ryan Postlewait saw the woman's Mazda 6 whizz by on Hylo Road on Sunday, and he confirmed the speed on a radar gun. Though the road is known to attract speeders, Postlewait reported that he has never clocked anyone driving that fast.

The driver, a 53-year-old woman, reportedly told authorities she was trying to teach her grandson about the dangers of speeding , and warned him never to drive the way she was about to.

The woman was charged with reckless driving and reckless endangering.

I guess it was worth a try
