The Mercedes G Wagon driver was stopped between junctions 26 and 27 after being recorded at an average speed of 113mph.
She told the cops she was speeding because she was desperate to go to the dunny or toilet. The reply seems to ring hollow, because whatever the nature of her 'emergency' was, she did not stop at a roadside service station, which would have been the natural thing to do if she were so hard-pressed. Maybe it was her test drive to beat the record of a Formula One driver.
She was driving unsupervised despite only having a provisional driving licence.
She had to arrange her own lift home after her car was confiscated, which happened at about 10.45pm, according to the Independent.
Derbyshire’s Poad Policing Unit tweeted: “The unsupervised provisional licence holder driving it claimed she was driving fast as she needed the toilet. So fast she missed the services.”
It said her speed varied “between 100 and 130mph, measured to an average of 113mph.”
