One speeding ticket? It happens to everyone eventually. No biggie. Some immediately go back to driving in excess of posted speed limits because that's just how they drive; some might temporarily be more inclined to slow it down.
Now, if in less than an hour from your first citation, you are pulled over again for speeding ... well, then even the most steadfast pedal-pushers would probably take the drag racing down a notch.
If you are pulled over twice and continue to speed and are pulled over for a third time in the same hour, you are probably crazy and definitely named Amy Bobkovich, a 38-year-old who achieved the rare speeding trifecta feat in Sheffield Village recently.
Sheffield Village Police Chief Larry Bliss tells Fox 8 News, Amy Bobkovich, 38, received the first ticket at 11:40 p.m., for driving 55-mph in a 35-mph zone on East River Road.
Ten minutes later she was ticketed on East River Road by a different officer for once again driving 55-mph in a 35-mph zone.
Chief Bliss says at 12:43 a.m. Sunday, Bobkovich received her third speeding ticket for driving 51-mph in a 35-mph zone. That ticket was issued on Detroit Road.
"It's unusual," said Chief Bliss. "I have never seen anything like this before. I have seen someone get a ticket and get upset, then get another one a short time later, but never three."
We're guessing Bobkovich had to be told 14 times a day not to eat paste in Kindergarten.
