BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Lynn University student Daria Geller took to Twitter Monday to complain about the speeding ticket she received from the Boca Raton Police Department.
Geller wasn't just driving slightly faster than she should have been. Public records reveal that Geller was cited for speeding 20-29 miles per hour over the speed limit.
The cost of the ticket: nearly $300.
Apparently not understanding that driving 20-29 miles per hour over the speed limit is dangerous on most Boca Raton roads, Geller Tweeted: “$280 ticket…Boca cops are killing me.”
Boca Police Chief Dan Alexander — who uses Twitter more than most cops use a radar gun — didn't miss a beat in responding with “Actually trying to save your life.”
Geller didn't respond to Chief Alexander's Tweet, but has Tweeted several compelling observations and statements over the past several days. Among them: “Wine night! (Smiley face).” “What a beautiful day to lie by the pool.” And our favorite, “Need to order my f'ing Burberry Boots fast! The weather literally sucks.”
Call it coincidence: Burberry boots cost approximately as much as a $280 speeding ticket.
Geller's court date is pending.
