Dutch motorcyclist caught by speed camera skidding down the road

Published: 30 April 2008

Motorists don't like getting caught speeding, but this may be a rather extreme way of getting off the charge.

This Dutch motorcyclist was clocked at 137 kmh (85 mph) by a speed camera on the A28 at Staphorst, Holland - while sliding down the tarmac on his backside after falling off his Kawasaki ZRX1200. As if it was any consolation the 50 year old motorcyclist was cleared of the speeding charge.

We wouldn't suggest that you try the same thing to get off speeding charges.
