The actress, older sister of Hilary Duff, admits that she tried her best to talk her way out of the ticket, but ended up being sent to traffic school - where she met one of her best friends.
She tells America's Maxim magazine, "Within my first week of having a licence, I got a ticket for reckless driving.
"I got caught going 65 miles per hour in Laurel Canyon (Los Angeles), which is not good. I said, 'I have a meeting that I'm late for.' I cried. I tried everything I could to get out of it. But he did not care."
