A guy I went to HS with got a ticket for 120 mph in his 1978 Chrysler Cordoba (so it was 8 years old at the time) - the trooper clocked him on an OFF RAMP! He was actually SLOWING down. None of us believed him until he brought the ticket in to school - he had to go to court with his parents - I can't remember the fine but I know he had a suspended license and his parents took the car away.

Avoiding the speeding part...
Legal limit under 21 = 0.00 or 0.01
So at most she was 0.06 which actually would be legal for someone that is 21.

And dont' jump saying "then lets lower the limit" my point is more that she was an idiot.

Good thought! Now, where they trying to make a news story, OR were they basing that off of the adult limit?

Oh gawd. I hope they don't let her drive again till she's 21 or something.
In Pennsylvania, if you're caught drinking underage they DO take you're license until your 21st birthday.... whether you're currently licensed or not.

Here's the $64,000 question: will her parents do the right thing and ground her until she's retired?

Andy
I'd say that would be a waste. And a PITA for the parents who would then have to cart her speeding ass around everywhere for the rest of the time she lives at home.

If I were her father, I'd have a 55mph governor put on her car.
If she was a real smartass, I'd have three separate governors put on. Done.

wouldn't the legal limit be 0, since she was under the drinking age anyway?

Why isn't stupidity fatal? :shock:
It is. The problem is it works in reverse, and the stupid people live and the innocent people die. Good thing they caught her before anything bad could happen.

Yes, the legal limit for 21+ is 0.08 but may change very soon due to threats from the Feds to reduce highway funding.
