A driver on Interstate 580 in the Tri-Valley managed to rack up about $1,000 in traffic fines Monday afternoon with two speeding tickets in 11 minutes, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
The California Highway Patrol first stopped the driver of a 2014 Nissan Altima at 12:30 p.m. for traveling 90-plus mph on westbound I-580 near Grant Line Road and the Altamont Pass, according to CHP Officer Tyler Hahn.
The same car was pulled over by a different officer 11 minutes later near Greenville Road in Livermore for going 103 mph, Hahn said.
The CHP tells drivers to slow down after handing out speeding tickets -- not to speed up, Hahn said.
The tickets probably cost the driver $400 to $500 apiece.
"That was an expensive 11 minutes," Hahn said.
