A Hayward woman was arrested after receiving three speeding tickets in one hour.
How fast is too fast? For a Hayward woman thrown in jail, it was three times in an hour, including twice at speeds over 100 miles an hour, according to reports.
Lynne Kathleen Cahill-Gomez was pulled over for speeding three times between 8:10 p.m. and 9:08 p.m. on Saturday on Highway 70 in Yuba County, according to the Marysville Appeal-Democrat.
She was pulled over for driving a Hyundai SUV 103 miles per hour and then again for going 105 miles per hour by 8:30 p.m. Then, 40 minutes later, she was pulled over for going 76 miles per hour, the newspaper reported.
She told officers she was in a hurry to get to Butte County to care for a sick relative, the newspaper reported.
California Highway Patrol officers arrested her for reckless driving. She was booked into jail but later released, and will be arraigned in Yuba County on April 19.
I had no idea a hyundai suv could ever get that fast(103mph)! Kudos to Hyundai!
She automatically has lost her CA Driver’s License.
4 or more pts in a 12 month period and DMV automatically suspends your license.
Any moving violation is 1 point. More severe violations include speeding at 15mph over the posted speed limit and reckless driving, which I believe are 2 pt violations.
I’m surprised they didn’t revoke her license on the 2nd violation at near 100mph, unless the database hadn’t yet updated, or unless they don’t take effect until the hearing date.
I believe she now has a min of 6 points, meaning she loses her driving privileges for 24 months. 2 more points and make it 36mos.
According to dmv.org, a $35 base fine might actually cost $146 after various fees and other surcharges are assessed depending on county. State adds another 20% so a $40 fee costs another $8. Many counties assess a base fee for the first 10-15 mph over the posted speed limit, then another $10/mph in excess of that amount. If so, and assuming she was driving the interstate at 70mph, each ticket cost at least $185 + $36 =$221 plus fees and insurance rate hikes. Wouldn’t be uncommon for it to be a $1000 ticket for each infraction at that speed and situation.
Damned white hispanics.
All that speeding and not one accident?
Perhaps speeding, in and of itself, is not particularly dangerous.
speeding isn’t all that dangerous, it’s the varying speeds of other drivers. if everyone’s doing about 95, it’s not that bad.
when a dozen people are doing 95 and come up on a couple guys doing 65- then there’s a problem.
Well, she got more speeding tickets in one hour than I have in 60 years.
That is sort of my point. Sure she was still speeding, I guess. There article does not say what the speed limit was on the road she was arrested for going 76 MPH on. Should might have still be gong 40 mph over the speed limit at 76 or she might have been going 6 mph over the speed limit.
It seemed the second ticket caused her to slow down a lot. Now was the usual traffic flow about there speed for the last one? Was she driving badly for some other reason than speed?
-—A few years back, I got 2 tickets, 70 in a 55 and 75 in a 55 on my way back home from a business trip a couple of hours away so that I could catch the Seinfeld finale. They were 15 mins apart. Pretty silly.-—
I did the same thing in college. I learned an important lesson that day that my friends continue to remind me of, decades later.
MY 2011 HYundai Genesis Coupe has a top speed of 157. I haven’t had up near that high yet, but I have topped 110 in it on a nice long flat straight deserted country road.
That’s a far better reason than Seinfeld!
I think she qualifies as wayward.
Occasionally mine gets stuck trying to make a connection and just keeps repeating an action such as posting. It;s embarrassing.
After reading the article, yes she does.
