Doing Life Together

Kate Plus 8(8)

It’s not really news when someone gets a speeding ticket. Most of us have unfortunately had that experience.

So when Kate Gosselin was again in the news this week for paying her speeding ticket, I didn’t think much about it. Actually, she got off easy. According to Lancasteronline.com (her home county in PN), she was doing 88 in a 65 mile an hour zone on August 9, 2011 and paid her fine by mail. She pleaded guilty and paid the $174 fine.

In Virginia where I live, this would have been considered Reckless Driving and the fine would have been more. Reckless driving is 20 miles or more over the posted limit or in excess of 80 miles per hour.

So while this is dangerous to her and others on the road, this is hardly news. What did catch my attention though was what she said to the police. The police reported that she said she was speeding to get home to her kids.

It was 1:37a.m. when she was stopped. Aren’t most kids in bed by then?

I honestly feel for this woman who keeps using her kids to excuse her behavior. I want her to get help and stay out of public focus for awhile. The speeding ticket would have probably been somewhat ignored. It was her comments that drew headlines.

Let’s hope she gets it together and works through the impact of all this celebrity. Meanwhile, it is another lesson to us all, when we are caught speeding, just admit we did it and pay the fine!
