Virtually every time a person drives on a highway there are those, who obviously are VERY important,
who drive too fast for safety and for conditions. I always wonder where the police and highway patrol are when a speeder is seen. Even a trained professional like this off-duty person can cause death and destruction in a instant at 147 MPH. He is trained to know better and his employment should be terminated. There is NO excuse unless the situation is truly life and death, and it does not appear this was the case. Any judge should "throw the book" at him and hand down the very maximum sentence in addition to employment termination by the state.

Of course this guy should be kicked off the force, sent to jail & fined. He is such a hypocrite. For years he has been going around ticketing people for going faster than the speed limit and enjoying every moment of it. He should be treated much harsher than the normal speeder because he is such a hypocrite.

Maybe the throttle stuck wide open, I got a ticket for 82 in a 55, & the highway patrol that gave me the ticket seemed like he was mad, tough luck for me as I was rolling with the flow & got caught - I think it was 196.00 fine. That slowed me down & I was guilty - pay the fine & take a class, but I wonder what his insurance renewal will be like, sometimes that can be punishment enough.

The article is not available anymore. I was just wondering since this is posted on the Kawasaki thread...was he doing 147 on a m/c? Wow!

Never mind...found the answer in the other thread about this. Yep on an m/c...and got an $150 fine..if not a cop he surely would have several fines..reckless driving etc...and an hugh fine and probably driving suspension for a while....
