Video: Grandmother gets caught for speeding due to late hair appointment

Sandra Powell, a 72-year old grandmother, is usually a mild-mannered old lady, but when it comes to hair appointments, this grandmother will do anything just to make it on time. And by anything, we mean blasting through a 45 mph zone at over 100 mph.

Unfortunately for grandma Sandra, her mad dash to the salon was clocked by a police cruiser’s camera and radar, which was obviously enough for her to get flagged for speeding. As a result, Mrs. Powell was given a 12-hour stint in jail and in an unexpected twist, was also diagnosed with an infected kidney, which, according to the evaluating doctor, could have contributed to Mrs. Powell’s ’speeding’ episode.

Its too sad that she got infection on her kidney due to his speed driving. However,
I was impressed with the ability of this grandmother to drive a 45 mph zone at over 100 mph!
And I like how she values the time but still she needs to follow the speed law.

Well, I guess next time grandma you should go a little bit more faster, so that police won’t catch you and mess up your appointment.
