Talk about being driven. A South Dakota woman racing to her granddaughter's middle school dance got four speeding tickets -- in less than three hours.

Loretta Lacy, 49, was on her way from Sioux Falls to Racine, Wis., -- a distance of more than 500 miles -- when she got her first ticket shortly before 2:30 p.m. last Friday on Interstate 90 near Jackson, Minn., the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

State troopers clocked her at 112 mph.

She was also cited for having no insurance and possession of marijuana, according to the Albert Lea Tribune.

Her next ticket came 20 minutes later when police caught her was going 99 mph. Her third happened an hour after that, and her fourth at 5 p.m. that day.

Needless to say, Lacy didn't make it to her granddaughter's dance on time, according to the American Bar Association Journal.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
