ALEXANDRIA, Minn., March 27 (UPI) -- A North Dakota man was ticketed twice within an hour for speeding at least 100 mph in neighboring Minnesota, police say.

The Minnesota State Patrol said Monday Murat Ayamba Ndikum, 31, of Grand Forks was pulled over the first time shortly after 6 p.m. March 13 for allegedly doing 100 mph on Interstate 94 near Alexandria, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Within the hour, he was stopped a second time on the interstate near Barnesville, this time clocked at 106 mph, the patrol said.

The speed limit on the interstate is 70 mph along those stretches, the newspaper said.

Ndikum allegedly told the second trooper he finds it difficult to keep track of his speed.

The Star Tribune said the average cost of a speeding ticket in Minnesota is about $120 for 10 miles over the limit. Those caught racing 20 mph over face double the fine and hitting 100 mph can cost them their licenses for six months.
