Oklahoma law seems to give 100 mph speeders a pass
Analysis shows a quarter of drivers caught exceeding 100 mph in Oklahoma escape with little or any penalty. Other states take a tougher stance.
On Nov. 30, 2011, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper ticketed Brandon L. Maples for driving 111 mph on Interstate 44 in Comanche County.
A week later, another trooper cited Maples for traveling 101 mph in Grady County.
Then, in March, Maples received another ticket in Grady County, this time for doing 102 mph.
