Police Fine Driver Who Supplies His Own Speed Camera Via YouTube
from the zoom-zoom-zoom dept
Lots of people dislike speed cameras that have a history of malfunctioning, but it's another thing altogether to basically turn a speed camera on yourself. Following in the footsteps of others who have been arrested after documenting their misdeeds on MySpace or YouTube, a young man in Norway has been given a $1,300 fine for speeding after he posted a video of himself driving at speeds up to 150 mph, more than twice the legal speed limit in Norway. If anything, the police seem to have let him off easy, saying they could only prove he had averaged 86 miles per hour, and set the fine at that speed. Once again, though, it just goes to show that just because you get away with something, you still can get in plenty of trouble if you post the evidence online for everyone to see. However, it certainly does fit with the rise of exhibitionist culture these days.
