Police ticket woman, 82, for doing 110 mph
GRESHAM, Ore. - An 82-year-old woman running late for an appointment got a $1,103 traffic ticket for doing 28 mph over her age on Thursday, Oregon State Police said.
Trooper Mike Reel spotted a 2005 Pontiac Bonneville on Highway 26 west of Gresham Thursday morning coming at him at a high rate of speed with its hazard lights on. Reel got a radar reading on the car of 110 mph - double the posted 55 mph speed limit.
Reel turned around and stopped the car. The driver, Marcia Brandon, 82, of Rhododendron, told Reel she was en route to a scheduled appointment but wasn't aware she was driving that fast, police said.

Not aware she was going that fast? Time to take away her licence, I would suggest.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

At least she didn't claim to be a doctor rushing to perform emergency surgery.
That's the reason I always get when I stop an MD for speeding. EVERY time.
I'm convinced they must teach them that at doctor school.

I got an elderly lady at 81mph coming into a 35mph zone. The reason for the speed: Late for church! This was on a 2 lane county road.
