Remember last month when a Delta Police caught a driver on Highway 17 driving around 170 kilomters an hour in an 80 zone? Pretty bad right? recently asked 1,000 drivers what they tell a police officer when they get busted for speeding.

– 24% said they didn’t even realize they were speeding

– 18% say they were late for work

– 14% thought they were going as fast as everyone else

– 11% were late to pick up or drop off a child

– 10% say its a medical emergency

– 11% didn’t see the speed limit sign

– 9% say they had to use the bathroom

– And 40% of drivers have the nerve to ask for “a warning” instead of a speeding ticket.
