As this article [The Sun] shows, a man was caught speeding in Cheshire this week at 406mph.
Quite impressive, I thought, as he was driving a Peugot 406, who’s maximum speed is listed as being 129mph.
I suppose it stands to reason that we Brits, the nation who currently hold the land speed record of 766mph [CNN], would be the first people to have a speed safety camera pick one of us up at over half the speed of sound. And such a clear picture, too…
Despite the obvious mistake, a spokesperson for Cheshire Safety Camera Partnership has stated that they will still be taking legal action.
