Man pays for speeding ticket with 22,000 pennies

FRISCO, Texas (KWWL) -

A speeding ticket can cost a pretty penny. Just ask one man who is protesting with pennies.

Brett Sanders was ticketed for driving 9 miles over the speed limit in his neighborhood in Texas.

He took the ticket to court, but lost... so he now has to pay a $220 fine.

This is what he did.

He shoveled 22,000 pennies into 5-gallon buckets and dumped them onto the counter at the courthouse.

"For me, it's a protest. It's more like what's right versus wrong. When my fine came due, I just decided I might as well pay with pennies, and we'll make a big spectacle of it," said Sanders.

The court says he actually overpaid.

They now owe him $7.81.

He says the court can keep it.
