Not many cars nowadays that top out at 119. Even a base model Camry will do about 130. Bet she was driving some sort of Euro luxury car that’ll do 150+.

If it was new... She was on the speed limiter. Most are limited at 110-120 limit when they got more in them.

What does MSNBC (Faux News) have to do with this?

Ted Kennedy killing a blond that wasn't worth to be mentioned by name sound less worth to the left than Jeanine Pirro speeding.

I always give passing to drivers who speed. Any punishment should come in the form of a speeding ticket or other punishment set for these type of offenses. Jeanine can afford the ticket so the money will be paying for the court system.

https://nypost.com/2017/11/20/fox-ne...iving-119-mph/

Ex-Westchester County District Attorney and Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro was busted for driving 119 mph in upstate New York, cops said Monday. The outspoken ex-prosecutor was stopped along Route 17 in the town of Nichols at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, the state police said. The speed limit where Pirro was stopped is 65 mph.


Pirro’s mom, Esther Pirro, told The Post that her daughter, who hosts TV’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” was on her way to visit when she got pulled over. The elder Pirro lives in Elmira, just west of Nichols, and is battling cancer. “I am so sorry I made her speed like that. She’s too much concerned about me,” Esther Pirro said. She’s very much concerned about my illness.”
you can say that for every driver doing 5 miles over the speed limit.. thank goodness no one was hurt


time to sue the manufacturer of the 2017 caddy.. irresponsible of a car company to make a car able to exceed the maximum posted speed limit.


that will be a cool ticket to mount in a frame and hang on the wall.


she broke the law, didn't put up a fight, wasn't drunk and didn't sexually harass anyone or steal designer sunglasses. why heck Jon Corzine, X NJ gov, was speeding over 90 mph to Drumthwacket to moderate a tiff between Rutgers girls BB tean and shock jock Imus. JJ drives a lot better than that state trooper driving unseatbelted JC.

She deserves to have the book thrown at her.

I'll be interested to see what happens with this.
Got picked up at the airport by a taxi in Munich Germany and the guy proceeded to go 200 KPH on the highway into the city. That's about the same speed Pirro was going and that's probably where she should live.

Wonder why in this story, they dont call this road by its other name: I86. 119 is excessive and deserving of a license suspension, but I get the feeling they used Rt 17 to give the image of her speeding down a 2 lane country road.
