    Interstate 580 Driver Gets Two Speeding Tickets in 11 Minutes: CHP

    A driver on Interstate Highway 580 in the East Bay 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 Highway 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.
