Lamborghini going 152 mph in 55 mph zone: California cops
The driver of a Lamborghini has been fined for careless driving after going almost three times the speed limit on a winding road in California, a police officer said.
The California Highway Patrol pulled over a blue Italian sports car 152 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone, according to a Buellton CHP Facebook post.
“154 is a state highway, NOT a speed limit,” the Facebook post said.
State Highway 154 is a winding narrow highway which features tight curves through wine country between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley, KTLA reports.
According to KTLA, the one-lane traffic is on a “steep rise with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other.” The other side has blind spots and runs along Lake Cachuma.
The California State Legislature says those who violate reckless driving laws face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
“We know how tempting it can be to ‘open it up’ when your car is fast and the weather is great, but save it for the track!,” the Facebook post said.
With the expected holiday traffic, the California Highway Patrol will continue to have a “zero tolerance” policy and urge the public to do their part to keep the roads “safe for all motorists,” according to a Facebook post.
“Slow down, avoid distractions, don’t drink and drive and wear your seat belts!” CHP Buellton troopers said.
Buellton is about 140 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
