Rollerblader sets off speed camera

Stupid but you have to admire his audacity.
Rollerblader sets off speed camera with 40mph dash (but police can't prosecute him for breaking spee...
Quote
Sam Tuffnell, 28, believes he reached a speed of 40mph on his fourth attempt to make the camera flash on the road in Hastings, East Sussex.

Quote
While they may have seen a photo of Tuffnell pumping his hands in the air as he passed, they will not be able to fine him because the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 says non-motorised vehicles can not be prosecuted for speeding.

But what about endangering the lives of other motorists...?

Ahhh, but a horse is not a vehicle, motorised or not: could that be why?

Was it a race or a quarter horse? If it was the former what's the name of the horse so that I can put a bet on it.

I honestly can't remember. All I know is the fuzz pulled her and and gave her an appointment with the judge.
