Though many of us don't have anywhere urgent to go, an open stretch of road entices some people to put pedal to the metal and drive well over the speed limit.

But what about 131 miles per hour?
It happened in Santa Rosa.
131 MPH? 🤦♂️ There’s no excuse to ever go that fast. The driver won’t like the fine or the points on his record or the impound, but our officer likely prevented a really bad crash. Don’t be like this driver. Don’t risk another person’s life just because your car can go fast. #Slow pic.twitter.com/XyWqcph59c— CHP Santa Rosa (@CHPSantaRosa) December 9, 2020
The California Highway Patrol tweeted a photo of the ticket, saying the driver won't like the fine or points on his record.
His car was also impounded.
It's one ticket the driver couldn't talk himself out of. The CHP says there's no excuse to ever go 131 miles per hour.
On top of that, the ticket indicates the driver had a suspended license.
