BOISE, Idaho — A speeding ticket can generally put a damper on someone’s day, but one grandmother was so impressed by a state trooper’s professionalism, she wrote a thank you note!
According to KBOI 2, Tana Baumler was on vacation and attending a wedding in Idaho Falls. With her husband and two granddaughters in tow, she found herself running late and was pulled over by Trooper Mike Nielson going 95 mph in a
75 mph zone.
KBOI reports that Baumler was so impressed by the troopers attitude and kindness, she felt compelled to say thank you!
She wrote a note to the Idaho State Police, which read, in part, “Officer Mike Nielson made it a good experience for my grandchildren by talking with them calmly and giving them stickers. He didn’t leave me out and I got my very own sticker shock.”
Baumler’s sticker? A $150 ticket.
