The South Dakota man was pulled over three times by the State Patrol, and once by a Pipestone County deputy. One ticket is for doing 115 mph in a 60 mph zone.

There's an old saying that goes something like this: "Make a mistake once, and it becomes a lesson... make it twice, and it becomes a choice."

Ok, but what does it become when someone makes the same mistake FOUR times?

A South Dakota man is in legal hot water after being pulled over for speeding not once, not twice, not even three, but four times in an hour's time while driving through southwestern Minnesota earlier this month. 

The Minnesota State Patrol noted details of this dubious feat on its Facebook page, describing the events of February 16. The man was reportedly making his way down State Highway 23 in Pipestone County when a trooper clocked him doing 115 mph in a 60 mph zone and pulled him over. The trooper soon learned that the driver had just been pulled over by a Pipestone County deputy for going 92 mph in a 60 mph zone. 

After letting the lead-footed driver pull away, the trooper followed, only to clock the same driver speeding again. The patrolman pulled him over a second time and wrote another violation. The South Dakota man drove off after being cited and minutes later was stopped by another trooper for his fourth speeding ticket in an hour.

He also was written up for not wearing a seat belt. 

The message from the State Patrol was pretty clear in the Facebook post. "Slow down!" it reads. "The speed limit is the law, not a suggestion." 

No word at this point on whether authorities will be going after his license.
