‘Fart­ing pas­sen­gers made me speed’ taxi driver told cops... STEP ON THE GAS!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A CAB­BIE blamed FART­ING pas­sen­gers for his speed­ing.

Po­lice stopped a taxi driver over the week­end be­cause he was speed­ing around town.

And he laid the blame with his stinky farts.

Dorset traf­fic po­lice shared the bizarre ex­cuse for speed­ing on their Face­book page.

They said: “Just when you thought you’ve heard it all – two ex­cuses from this evening that didn’t work. A taxi driver failed to no­tice the large marked traf­fic car in his rear view mir­ror when speed­ing through Bournemouth town.

“When stopped, the driver blamed it on the flat­u­lence from his three pay­ing pas­sen­gers for the rea­son he sped.”

Unim­pressed by his some­what in­ven­tive ex­cuse, of­fi­cers gave him a speed­ing ticket and ex­plained he would be fined £100 and given three points.

It seems Dorset Po­lice were busy on Fri­day evening as they had an­other bloke who gave them a daft ex­cuse.

One driver, dis­tracted by his mo­bile, drove through a no-en­try area and down the en­tire length of a one-way street the WRONG way.

He claimed he was in the process of an­swer­ing his phone and pan­icked – when he saw the po­lice so turned down the first road he came to.
