The driver of a Lamborghini was ticketed on Sunday for reaching speeds of 150 mph on Highway 154 Sunday.
The driver was ticketed for speeding by a Buellton California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer for reckless driving and traveling at nearly three times the legal limit.
CHP shared a phot of a black Lamborghini on the side of the road and a portion of the written ticket that shows the driver was clocked at 152 mph. The posted speed limit is 55 mph.
CHP shared images of the stop on social media with the humorous caption, “154 is the State Route NOT the speed limit.”
As locals know, Highway 154 is a winding narrow highway that takes drivers along tight curves between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley.
“We know how tempting it can be to ‘open it up’ when your car is fast and the weather is beautiful, but save it for the track,” CHP stated.
With heavy traffic expected throughout the holidays, CHP is asking motorists to slow down, remove distractions, and never drive impaired.
Reckless driving violators could face up to 90 days in jail and be fined as much as $1,000, according to state law.
