BOISE, Idaho — A woman who got a speeding ticket while on a recent vacation to Idaho wrote a note to the Idaho State Police thanking the trooper for the kindness he showed her grandchildren during the stop.

KBOI-TV reports the Idaho State Police shared the note on Wednesday.

The woman wrote that Officer Mike Nielsen made the stop a good experience for her grandchildren by talking with them calmly and giving them stickers.

She says she wasn't left out and got her "very own sticker shock."

The letter did not say how much she was fined.
