Wyoming Driver Caught Going 46 MPH Over Speed Limit 2 Days in a Row
The Albany County Sheriff's Office is reminding drivers that speed limit signs are the law of the land, not mere suggestions after the same driver was caught going 46 mph over the posted speed limit two days in a row.
Sheriff Aaron Appelhans says the driver, who has a Wyoming address, was stopped for speeding on U.S. 30 south of Rock River on Thursday, June 22, and then again on Friday, June 23.
"The same offense happened on consecutive days with the same individual," said Appelhans.
Appelhans says the driver was given four citations -- two for going 116 mph in a 70 mph zone and two for reckless driving. He says the total citation amount was approximately $1,530.
"Help us help you get to your destination safely, slow down, buckle up, look twice for other motorists, and wear helmets when necessary," the Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post.
"Be safe, Laramie, getting to your destination a few minutes earlier is not more important than your life or the life of others," the agency added.
