not my best call in life

What's the fastest you've ever driven, where, and why?

I was on the way home from a week away in Waterloo and really anxious to just.get.home.already.
I did glance at the speedometer at one point, noticed I was doing 146 in a 90 and decided to slow down in a bit.
I got to 125 in an 80 when the officer saw me, and did a happy spin in the dirt to show me his fancy, flashing lights.
that's that moment when you say "crap" and bring your car to a stop, grabbing the stuff you know he's coming to ask you for, and reconcile yourself to the inevitable.
almost 20 years without a ticket.

could have been way worse.
