Hello Trolley, Well Hello Trolley

It’s So Nice To Have You Back Where You Belong

A British motorist accused of speeding at 98mph beat the rap after spending £1,200 to prove his 14-year-old car could only reach 85mph. The man convinced magistrates with his scientific approach and said his vehicle was "a glorified Japanese shopping trolley".

FOOTNOTE: Spud-o-meter.

I admire this guy. I tried to beat a bad rap for a ticket once. For nearly a year I faithfully showed up at court to argue and each time they postponed the case. I finally just paid the ticket.

His proof probably cost several times the cost of the fine, but he stood up on principle. Good for him.
