PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) – Former Vice President Al Gore paid a $141 fine for speeding on a highway last month near Oregon’s coast, a state police official said on Friday.

Gore, who carried Oregon in the 2000 presidential election, was driving in a rented car to visit family when he was issued a speeding ticket for going 75 miles (120 kph) per hour in a 55 mph (88 kph) zone on a highway between Portland and the Oregon coast, a popular summer destination.

“He was cooperative, polite and respectful,” said Dale Rutledge, spokesman for the Oregon State Police.

Gore mailed in his check for the ticket, well ahead of the deadline for contesting it on Sept. 13, Rutledge said.
