Athletes do everything fast. They run fast. They throw fast. They jump fast. They shoot fast. They swim fast. They slide fast. They skate fast. They punch fast. They dive fast. And they…well, you get the point, right? Athletes are obsessed with going fast at all times.
And that's great when athletes are on the court, field, rink, or diamond. But what happens when they're not participating in their respective sports? Unfortunately, a lot of them don't know how to slow down. So it should come as no surprise to hear that lots and lots of athletes like to drive fast, too, especially considering they're all in high end luxury and sports cars. In fact, just last week, South Carolina defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney—a guy who is likely going to be one of the top picks in next year's NFL Draft—got caught doing 110 mph in a 70-mph zone and was issued a summons.
Clowney is hardly the first athlete to get busted going 100-plus mph, though. There have been many other athletes who have been pulled over for doing the same thing. Here is A Recent History of Athletes Caught Speeding at More Than 100 mph.
