Britney Spears was cited for speeding by the California Highway Patrol during a March 10 traffic stop, court documents reveal.
Spears was seen driving at an ‘unsafe speed for prevailing conditions,’ according to documents obtained by NBC News.
The court documents do not reveal how fast Spears was driving, what the conditions were at the time of the stop, or where she was driving.
The citation comes months after news in November that Spears was advised by doctors to be careful behind the wheel as she reenters the world from a conservatorship which prevented her from driving for 13 years.
After being barred from driving for 13 years, Britney was freed from conservatorship restrictions and allowed to drive in 2021. Here she is behind the wheel last October
Jodi Montgomery, Britney’s former conservator of person, reportedly had medical professionals and a judge outline a series of recommendations to protect the star as she transitions back to freedom, according to TMZ.
The doctors reportedly suggest she be more careful while behind-the-wheel, citing a September 26 incident where she was caught speeding in LA.
Spears was in Westlake Village when she was stopped by a CHP officer for going 62 MPH in a 40 MPH zone, an incident that was confirmed to TMZ via CHP.
She was let off with a verbal warning.
Back in July Britney’s conservatorship appeared to lift any restrictions they had on her driving after she begged for her rights to be returned in an emotional June court hearing.
At the time a source told People: ‘Britney is very happy the conservatorship is now allowing her to drive.
‘She is ecstatic and beyond grateful for all the help she is receiving right now.’

In years past Spears has struggled on the road.
In 2006, prior to her conservatorship, she caused controversy when photographed driving with then-five-month-old son Sean Preston in her lap.
After the incident, she apologized, reportedly telling Access Hollywood: ‘I made a mistake and so it is what it is, I guess.’
The next year Spears was captured apparently running over the toes of a paparazzi in Beverly Hills, per MTV.
Around the same time in 2007, cameras caught her committing a number of traffic offenses, including running red lights, driving while using her phone and making illegal turns.

In April Spears announced on Instagram that she was pregnantwriting: ‘So I got a pregnancy test… and uhhhhh well… I am having a baby.’
It will be the first child for singer and fiancé Sam Asghari, while Britney has two sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15 from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.

Announcement: The singer shared the news in a lengthy Instagram post
When her conservatorship took over in February of 2008 her driving privileges were almost completely revoked.
The post-conservatorship plan also recommends Spears keeps both herself and her home drug and alcohol-free.

Britney is not required to adhere to any of the recommendations.
