Tana Baumler was attending a wedding in Idaho Falls. Like most people on vacation she got a little behind schedule and tried to get to Yellowstone National Park with her husband and two granddaughters.
She was caught by Trooper Mike Nielson going almost 95 mph in a 75 mph zone on Interstate 15, KBOI TV reports.
Baumler was so moved by the trooper's professionalism and kindness, she just had to say thank you. On Wednesday, ISP shared a thank-you note from Tana that she wrote last week.
"He was giving the kids stickers, and little sheriff badges -- he was just really nice to them," said Baumler. "I thought that it was kind of nice just because then the four year old wasn't scared."
