Sarah Palin Blames Sammy Hagar for Speeding Ticket
Posted Thursday, July 24th 2014 @ 10am

For the past 30 years, every rock fan has had the same thought while driving.

"I Can't Drive 55."

Sammy Hagar's 1984 hit song I Can't Drive 55 is an anthem for every lead foot who gets behind the wheel of a car.  Hagar was inspired to write the song when he got his own speeding ticket.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is apparently a lead footed Sammy Hagar fan.

Palin was ticketed for going 65 MPH in a 45 MPH zone in Wasilla, Alaska.  She told reporters that Hagar's I Can't Drive 55 was on the radio.  Palin said the song inspired her speed.
