ILLINOIS (WIFR) -- A 21-year-old woman tells Illinois State Police she was "late for class" after she was caught driving 135 mph.

Police did not reveal the location, but confirmed the radar initially hit 116 mph before she sped up.

Illinois State Police released the following message via Facebook:

"Folks, this is who you’re sharing the roads with. This is why we want you to stay focused. This is why we want you to drive the speed limit to better prepare you to stop in time in case this lady gets a flat tire and comes barreling across the interstate lanes at you.

This is utterly ridiculous and now she is going to be really, really, really late to class."
