(CNN) – Slow down, Sarah, slow down.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was ticketed last week in her hometown of Wasilla, where she once served as mayor, for going 10-19 mph over the speed limit. According to a court docket reviewed by CNN, she received a $154 ticket.
"I wasn't speeding, I was qualifying," Palin told TMZ.
She added that she was listening to Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55" on the radio when it happened. She plans on paying the fine.
A Palin aide had no further comment.
