LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A lawmaker cited for traveling at 109 mph on Interstate 75 in Lexington says there's "no excuse" for her actions.
State Rep. Regina Bunch said in a statement on Wednesday that she did not realized until she was stopped how fast she was going. The speed limit where she was stopped is 70 mph.
Bunch said she will not contest the ticket, but will take responsibility for it. She says she hopes her actions "serve as a lesson" to others about the importance of following the speed limit and paying attention while behind the wheel.
She says the incident will push her to strive harder to be a better example for Kentuckians.
Bunch represents House District 82, which encompasses Whitley and a portion of Laurel County.
