Mustang Owner Speeds at 142 MPH Right After 2 Tickets

By - Mustang Owners in China

After getting written up for 92 MPH, rocketing away from a Sheriff probably isn’t a good idea.

It’s usually a good idea to drive reasonably after getting a speeding ticket. However for Chauntl Wilson, she chose not to. According to a Fox News report, Wilson was pulled over on I-80 in Nebraska, moving along at a brisk 92 miles per hour in her yellow 2018 Mustang. Given that the speed limit in that area was 75 miles per hour, it wouldn’t have been a terribly bad ticket. A Sheriff from Council Bluffs pulled over the speeding yellow Mustang, wrote Wilson a citation and expected the saga to end there. That’s when Wilson decided to roar off.

If the departure at high-speed wasn’t bad enough, Wilson was clocked shortly there after traveling at 142 miles per hour through Nebraska’s 1 a.m. darkness. According to our calculations, she got the two tickets within the same mile, because right now the real-world speed for a 1/4 mile run from a 2018 Mustang GT stands at about 115. Unlike the first infraction, 142 miles per hour is considered willful reckless driving, and this time around she refused to pull over for a short time.

Some people really are their own worst enemy, and that’s certainly the case for Wilson. On top of what she’d done, it was still yet to get worse.

After a search of her car, police searched her car and found a small amount of marijuana. While that’s a separate problem on its own, it was obviously the least of her problems at this point.

There’s a lesson to be learned here for anyone who would rather not get a couple of speeding tickets in one night. Mostly it comes to common sense and keeping your speeds reasonable in the first place, but secondly, don’t speed to the point that you wind up behind bars.
