Cops arrest woman who ‘likes to drive fast’


SUMMIT COUNTY – A woman who said she was in a hurry and likes to drive fast earned a quick 40 points against her driver’s license in a multiepisode speeding incident July 1.The woman, identified as 33-year-old Allyson Vincent of Denver, was ticketed twice, then arrested for her personal effort to turn Interstate 70 into the high-speed German Autobahn.According to Colorado State Patrol (CSP) trooper Lloyd Smith, a trooper was parked on the side of the road on eastbound I-70 near the top of Vail Pass when he saw the car come up the hill at 110 mph in a posted 65 mph zone. He issued her a 20-point ticket for speeding 45 mph over the limit and reckless driving.After Vincent was served the ticket and allowed to leave, she drove past a second trooper at 99 mph just east of Copper Mountain. This second trooper wasn’t able to get turned around fast enough to safely chase her. Finally, Vincent was stopped for the second time by Cpl. Matt Ozanic, who clocked her at 95 mph before she got to Frisco. When she saw the patrol car, she slowed so abruptly she almost lost control of the car, Smith said.She finally got her car stopped on the eastbound Silverthorne off-ramp, where troopers gave her a second 20-point ticket for speeding and reckless driving. Ozanic placed her under arrest and transported her to the Summit County Jail.Ozanic said the reason Vincent gave for her continued speeding was her anger at the first trooper giving her a ticket. Her bond was set at $150; she bonded out at 8 p.m. Ozanic said this was the first time he had to take somebody to jail for speeding.In Colorado, a motorist who receives 12 points on their driver’s license will lose driving privileges for one year. If this motorist is convicted on all charges, she will lose her license for at least three years. The car was owned by Hertz rental car in Denver.
