Country star Easton Corbin has vowed to never speed on the road again after he was hit with a $1,000 (£666) fine for exceeding the limit on his motorcycle in Illinois.

The singer was heading home to Nashville, Tennessee when police spotted him speeding near a construction zone and pulled him over.

Corbin tells ABC News radio, "You know, it's only about 45 or 50 in this construction zone. Well, by the time I get past this semi (truck), I'm going 80.

"I had to hire an attorney to come pay my ticket. It ended up costing me a thousand bucks. I was like, 'I will never speed again in my life.'"
