    Driver gets 70 speeding tickets in 5 months

    Driver gets 70 speeding tickets in 5 months

    PHOENIX, Arizona (Reuters) - As a mortgage broker in Arizona, Francesca Cisneros is used to working with big numbers. It's the double-digit speed limits she has trouble with.

    Cisneros racked up 70 speeding tickets in the last five months, a record for the Scottsdale Police Department, police said on Friday.

    Speeding cameras in Scottsdale, a suburb of Phoenix, snapped pictures of the 32-year-old woman as she tore through the sun-baked city in her Honda Civic between March 2 and July 31.

    "She told arresting officers she was speeding because she seemed to be late for client meetings all the time," Scottsdale Police Department spokesman Mark Clark told Reuters. "I guess she's got some time management issues."

    The second-worst offender in the department's history accumulated a mere 25 tickets, Clark said.

    Police said Cisneros said she threw her speeding tickets away because she thought nothing could happen to her if she didn't pay them.

    Clark said Cisneros faces some $11,000 in fines and could have her license suspended.

    I think they ought to take her license away for a long time. What she's doing is very dangerous. She's disregarding others safety just because she can't manage her time well.
    That isn't right.

    Actually she looks like her only concern is to get to where she was going.
    I am guessing she isn't clueless at all but she will sure try like hell to play like she is in court!

    If she can't take 10 minutes out of her day to slow down, can she take 24 hours out of each day to be dead when she wrecks?

    They must have very low fines for speeding in AZ; $11,000 for 70 offenses; that's only $157.14 per offense. Heck, that's not even close to a redlight violation here. It would take two of those AZ speeding tickets to equal one of our CA red light violations, or a CA carpool lane violation.

    Speeding in a school zone nets you an additional $500 on TOP of the initial speeding ticket here. I... don't... really...recall how I know that.

    Bite your tongue woman, LOL, I haven't had a violation in 25 years. CA has large black and white reminder signs all over the place that glaringly remind us how much it is going to hurt financially if we screw up. Come to think of it, it must cost them a fortune to change all of those signs, as they raise the fines all too frequently.
