So many of us have received a ticket for driving over the speed limit.

It is one thing to get a speeding ticket in the mail after having sped through a red light. But it is another thing entirely to have a patrol officer turn his sirens on, approach the vehicle, and ask that the driver hold himself accountable for speeding.

Carrie Underwood experienced the second scenario on Monday, People reports. She shared the experience in a tweet that sums up what it’s felt like for many people who’ve been pulled over by a cop for the first time.

According to Taste of Country, in a new tweet about it, in which Underwood called herself a “rule follower” and a “granny driver,” the country star told fans that in her 18 years of driving, she’s never been pulled over before. And she didn’t hold back while sharing her feelings of shame and embarrassment about breaking the rules.

She wrote:

Well, it happened today. After 18 years, I can no longer say I’ve never been pulled over for speeding. I feel so ashamed! I may or may not have cried in my car after the cop let me go. #RuleFollower #GrannyDriver #ImSorry

Underwood suggested that she feels really ashamed of something many people do pretty regularly.

But one has to appreciate Underwood’s concern over abiding by the law, whereas others may try to manipulate the system; while some women shed tears to get out of paying tickets, Underwood cried in her car after the cop left.

Class act.
