MAN SHOCKED TO RECEIVE $1.4 MILLION SPEEDING TICKET

Imagine receiving a citation for a speeding ticket and realizing a $1.4 million fine.

It happened to a man in Georgia.

Connor Cato says he received the citation after getting pulled over in September for driving 90 miles per hour in a 55 zone.

Cato called the court thinking the figure was a typo.

Court officials told Cato he had to pay it or appear in court in December.

Officials in Savannah say anyone caught driving more than 35 miles per hour above the speed limit has to appear in court, where a judge will determine the actual fine.

Savannah officials say the fine Cato received reflected a “placeholder”. It was automatically generated by e-citation software used by the local Recorder’s Court.

The actual fine cannot exceed $1,000 in addition to state-mandated costs.
