As a noted theological lawyer, my first thought was that she was bang out of order, for does it not say in the Book of Old Moore 17.VII: "Lo! Behold the sign of the speed limit and obeyeth this at all times for it is there for good reason. He who doth exceed the stated speed shalt get 3 points on the license and a firm slap on the wrist or a speed awareness course at the very least." That sounds pretty much cut and dried ...

But then, I realised, that having been dead for 6 years really does make quite a difference. St. Winnifred's Letters to the Teletubbies 5.XXII, for example, states "Ye that have been dead for many years shalt transcend the laws of the living and be bidden only to do the will of the voices in thine head." There's no ambiguity in that sucker, so we can't ignore it.

Admittedly, there are a few grey areas arising from her response to an armed officer (obviously guns, unlike 120MPH motor cars, hadn't been invented when Ye Olde Grimoires of ye Sacred Law were written) so the Book of Old Moore fails to deal with it but the broader message of St. Winnifred would still seem to apply.

So, all in all, my considered verdict would be: give the lass a break! Life ain't easy when your dead and I'm sure she's very sorry for any inconvenience that she gave the cop. Let her drive home at whatever speed she sees fit and may her voices be with her.
98.4% of statistics are made up on the spot.
