This num skull is in trouble all ready? Well, being from Memphis where there is not many expressways, I guess he felt free from all the traffic jams down there and want to blow off a little stem.
Bet he had his thuggish buddies were in the back seat. Go Jason, Go Jason, now we will have a car crash instead of a motorcycle crash.

as a resident of Kane Cty and someone who drives that expressway, I say fine the heck out of him!

Glad to see he's off to an excellent start. I foresee a PSA regarding driving safety and maybe we can Shawn Kemp to be his his off court advisor.

GREAT!!! Already another dope athlete. Good choice, Paxon. Don't you even know how to vet a person? This kid is starting out as a problem already. Better hang on to Heinrich and Gordon. At least they don't face jail time.

A 19 year old getting a speeding ticket? Wow, never heard that one before. Pretty much everyone I know has gotten a ticket before. Your government officials get tickets. Your priest gets tickets. Big deal. He'll figure out what not to do like everyone else does. This is news worthy how exactly? Oh yeah, the Trib and the rest of Chicago like to think they have thugs on their NBA team that need to be put in their place. Makes me think you all haven't seen a real thug before. Rose isn't trouble no more than you were when you got a ticket at age 19. Get over it.

A 19 year old kid picks up a speeding ticket. Hires an attorney to represent him in court.....

1) This isn't newsworthy.
2) The kid has NO criminal background even thought he comes from a crappy neighborhood.
3) Some folks need to get a grip on reality......it's not like the kid was driving drunk and killed someone.

What percentage of the population in the United States can say that they never were ticketed for speeding?

What a bunch of numnuts...."life in prison" for speeding? Yeah...that would go over great with the taxpayers!!

This was reckless driving that put many innocent lives at risk and into grave and unsuspecting danger.
We can all learn valueable lessons from each other.

Perhaps the next time rather than a police officer stopping Mr. Rose, it'll be a tree, block wall, or a bridge abuttment.......

Then, Derrick Rose won't have to think twice about endangering others!

I agree. This kid is 19 years of age. It's a speeding ticket! Relax all you old, white people.

Most pampered pro athletes usually wait till they've at least played one game for their team before getting in trouble with the law.

This clown didn't waste any time. It'll probably be the first of many brushes with the police.

Everyone was willing to going Cedric a second chance and he was charged with a BWI.

This kid only received a speeding ticket. I received a ticket for going 106 mph when I was his age. I learned my lesson and I feel he will also.

Good luck, Rose
