    BMW M3 driver caught speeding by the Police doing 156mph. It must have been bouncing off the limiter :big grin:

    He might be in the record books twice.
    Jason McAllister - Fastest street speeder @ 156.7mph
    Jason McAllister - Largest traffic fine for speed violation.

    I don't think so. . . there was a Koenigsegg stopped in this year's Gumball 3000 for doing 210 :eek:

    That would be in America.

    The M3 driver was caught here in the UK, so I'm assuming he'll have the record British speeding offences.

    Not that these records really matter, as soon as your 20mph over the limit they just take your license away anyway. It might however get him enough publicity to pay the fine:big grin:

    according to Ed, the driver of that red lotus in this year's gumball some guy running the gumball about 3 years ago set the current record for most expensive ticket. the guy was in some kind of ferrari, i forgot which, the road was empty except for a black mercedes S500. not exactly sure what this asshole was thinking but he pounded his pedal and blew by the benz at about ~200 mph. the benz turned out to be a unmarked police car and they weren't too happy, they chased him down, he at least had the brains to pull over (some previous gumballers were chased by police, choppers, etc)

    anyways the cop comes out a little cranky and writes him a ticket for ~$25,000, he could pay that on the spot or go to jail, his choice. the guy hands him his credit card and told him to charge it.

    pimp. stoopid...but pimp.

    I cant remember who it was, or even which country it was in. But not so long ago an exec got done for speeding, in the country he was booked at the fine is calculated per salary, the fine was over $200,000 dollars IIRC.

    Think it was in Sweden. The guy was one of the executives for the Nokia mobile phone company.

    So I guess unless you flip burger at McDonalds you might want to avoid speeding in Sweden.

    I never said this was the fastest I've gone, it's just the only photo like this that I have.

    I was running out of room as I approached 125 and it's hard as shit to concentrate and take pictures at the same time.
