I'm so sad

I've been teaching a free Emergency Prep class in my area. Taught a class the other night about 75 miles away from home. On the way home I was going 50 to 55 MPH and the speed limit was 60MPH so I stepped on the gas to speed up a little and the gas peddle speed up on it's own so I hit the brake and it released the gas peddle. I stayed at 55MPH and the next thing I knew I had flashing lights behind me. 10 seconds of going over the speed limit and I got a ticket even after I told the HWY Patrolman what had happened. We had a nice chat and good laugh because it's the family joke about Mom can't break the law ever because they'd be right there to catch me. Each and every time. Cost me $117 for the stupid gas peddle sticking and revving up on it's own. I've taken it in a couple times to be checked but they insist there is nothing wrong. Will teach the other 4 classes that have been scheduled and then give it up I guess.
