Teen Gets A Ticket For Driving 138 Down The Highway

We’ve all been caught going above the speed limit when we’re running late to work or to an appointment–but sometimes you gotta know when to chill, and this Detroit teenager could use a lesson in chilling out for real.

State police in Detroit caught one teenager doing the I-75 doing a whopping 138 mph in his 2012 Chevy.

The 17-year-old was busted last Friday night around 8:45 p.m, zipping down the left lane of the highway near Holly Road. The teen was trying to get off on the exit, but was nabbed by a Michigan State Police trooper from the Metro North Post.

“The driver … stated that he was traveling so fast and passing other cars and ducking in and out of lanes because he was late for his 9:30 p.m. curfew. The trooper gave the kid a break on the reckless driving charge, but he did earn a ticket for 138/70 and the SMH award,” police posted about the incident on Twitter.

While police did not give out information about how much a speeding ticket for 68 mph over the limit will cost, but online sites listing Michigan prices show tickets for  26+ miles over the limit start at $155, then adding $4 per additional mile, so things could really get up there.

Going more than 16 mph over the limit can also net you four points on your driver’s license, according to the Michigan Secretary of State.
