It’s not the first time we’ve seen the California Highway Patrol (CHP) turn to social media to make an example of a bad driver. The driver of this Arctic White C7 Coupe recently earned the wrath of sarcasm from CHP Oroville’s Facebook page after being stopped for speeding in a construction zone.
The radar gun reads 93 mph as the officer holds up, which also has the added benefit of covering the offending Corvette’s license plate. “But Officer, I have a Corvette” and “I can’t drive…55!” he says in this FB post, referencing the famous Sammy Hagar song.
To make matters worse, that 93 mph occurred in a construction zone where speeding fines are usually doubled. A google search of traffic fines in California shows that drivers going more than 26 mph over the posted limit result in a ticket costing $648. Ouch!!
Who wants to guess whether or not construction was acually occuring at the time of this incident? Regardless, take it easy out there when the speed limit is posted lower because that’s where these guy’s like to hunt.
