Crybaby of the Week: I wonder if this stupid woman considered slowing down?

Tessa Coote is our Crybaby of the Week

Some people are retarded, none more-so than this hairdresser who went and whined to the NZ Herald about her speeding tickets through the new tunnel in Auckland.

Two round trips to visit her sick father in Waikato Hospital have cost Tess Coote $360 in speeding fines through the Waterview Tunnel.

“It’s a money-making tube,” says the Kingsland hairdresser, who says she was conscious of the 80km/h speed limit driving through the new $1.4 billion tunnel.

All to no avail. Coote received four speeding tickets in the mailbox for driving through the tunnel both ways on September 2 and September 3. She was clocked at speeds of between 92km/h and 98km/h.

Three of the fines are for $80 and one for $120 for allegedly driving at 98km/h.

Coote is baffled: “There I was being careful. It is quite hard slowing from 100km/h to 80km/h. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t doing 98km/h.”

She is going to ask to see photographic evidence from the speed cameras before paying the fines.

What will the photographs show? Someone else using her car to get to work?

Quite hard slowing down from 100km/h to 80km/h? Has she heard of brakes? Did she notice the massive fricken signs at least two kilometres before the tunnel warning of speed restrictions?

The cameras are at the tunnel entrances in both directions…she would have been warned for literally miles before she got there…and still, she continued on at or around 100km/h.

She should also be fined for being a whingy cow.
