The ABC brings word of 23 year old Melissa Emely Grant (quirky spelling and the letter Y for maxtreme points) who between July and September last year managed to rack up 38 speeding fines in parts Tuggeranong, as well as tripping a red light camera.
She has pleaded guilty in the ACT Magistrates Court to 38 speeding offences and one red light camera offence.
The defence said Grant was in a stressful relationship at the time and often ran late for work.
The court has heard Grant would not be able to pay the speeding fines totalling more than $6,680.
Magistrate Peter Dingwall instead imposed a sentence of 312 hours of community service.
With her worst infraction driving 119 in a 100 zone she couldn’t have been shaving more than seconds off her travel time.
It does make one wonder if being pulled up by a police car just once wouldn’t have made us all safer, and saved her 312 hours of her life.
