South Dakota Woman Gets 4 Speeding Tickets In Under 3 Hours

You have to be on a real mission to rack up four speeding tickets in less than a three-hour period, but that's exactly what one South Dakota woman did.

Loretta Lacy, 49, allegedly sped from her home in Sioux Falls, S.D. across southern Minnesota in the hopes of getting to her granddaughter's middle school dance in Racine, Wis., according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Lacy got her first ticket on the 525-mile trip shortly before 2:30 p.m. after dispatchers received two complaints of a driver speeding and weaving in and out of traffic, and a state trooper pulled her over after clocking her doing 112 mph. She was ticketed for speeding, no insurance and possession of marijuana, according to the AlbertLea Tribune.

20 miles later Lacy received her second ticket when she was pulled over doing 99 mph. An hour later, she was pulled over again for doing 88 mph. Around 5 p.m., Lacy got her fourth ticket by doing 88 mph again, according to TwinCities.com

State Patrol Lieutenant Eric Roeske said that all of Lacy's offenses were petty misdemeanors, so arresting her wasn't an option. However, after the second ticket Minnesota officials put out an advisory to all state troopers in Minnesota and Wisconsin to be on the lookout for her.

The worst part of Lacy's story is despite the hectic speeding, she didn't make it on time to her granddaughter's house, according to ABA Journal.
