If at first you don't succeed (at speeding) try again? That seemed to be the motto for one young woman, who was caught speeding more than once. According to the news, the 21-year-old woman was caught speeding three separate times, all within one hour. The first time she was allegedly traveling 93 miles per hour, 23 miles above the speed limit. The second time (about 40 minutes later) the same police officer saw her going 97 miles per hour. She was cited both times for Reckless Driving. I guess the first citations she received weren't enough of a warning for her, because she was spotted a third time going 94 miles per hour. In Denver, Yuma County and everywhere else in Colorado, she would be charged with Speeding, C.R.S. 42-4-1101.
