Police claim they stopped driver at 127 miles per hour

Most people break the speed limit. Maybe you go 60 mph when you're in a 55-mph zone. Maybe you go 80 mph when you're in a hurry on the interstate. Maybe you have accidentally sped through zones where you did not realize the limit had dropped. It happens.

However, some incidents stand out because they go beyond these relatively minor infractions. That's what happened in a recent case where police claim that a driver on the I-580 was going 127 mph.

It appears from photos that the car, a Hyundai, got pulled over by an officer on a motorcycle. The speed gun shows 127 mph in the picture, with the car stopped on the side of the road. The police then posted about the stop on social media in order to show people that they take these things seriously.

At that speed, the driver was given a misdemeanor speeding ticket.

While you personally may never get a ticket at speeds like this, it is important to understand that citations and potential ramifications get more and more serious at higher speeds. While getting a ticket for going five mph over the limit may not feel like a big deal, getting a misdemeanor for going well over 100 mph puts you in a very tough spot.

In a situation like that, it is very important that you understand all of the legal options you have. Aside from the financial impact of the ticket, you need to think about the points on your license, the potential impact on your career and much more.
