Dad-To-Be’s Speeding Ticket Fight Set For April

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — It’s going to be three more months before a New Hampshire man gets his day in court to fight a speeding ticket he got for driving more than 100 miles per hour when his wife was in labor.

John Coughlin of Londonderry was given an April court date Monday when he appeared to answer a charge he was going 102 mph in a 55 mph speed zone on Sept. 18.

Coughlin arrived at Manchester District Court with his wife, Angela, and baby Kyle asleep in a car seat. Coughlin paid a $50 fine for failing to appear in court last week. He said his paperwork had a different date.

Coughlin says his now four-month-old son might be driving by the time the speeding ticket ordeal is over.
