Sorry for speeding, but I’ve a top excuse
TRAFFIC cops have revealed some of strangest excuses given by speeding motorists.
The catalogue of pleas includes nagging wives, dodgy fast food and mad dashes for the loo.
Top of the list came from a motorist who said: “Sorry I was speeding, but my missus ran away with a police officer the other week and I thought you were bringing her back.”
A fast food lover tried to blame a meal of “dodgy fried chicken” for a desperate race to a toilet, while another driver thought honesty was the best policy when he explained: “I was trying to get away from the cops.”
The list was compiled by Surrey Police and County Council’s Drive SMART campaign. Other gems include: I was trying to make my wife shut up by scaring her.
Please can you let me off, I’ll lose my job.
One of my dogs in the back is a police dog. Well an ex-police dog. Well just a dog.
My passenger has drunk too much and I don’t want her being sick in the car.
A council spokesman said: “The police have heard all the excuses in the book.
“You won’t get away with speeding, so stick to the limit.”
