Not sure if you know, but the Germans may have some of the best highways (can you say “no speed limit”?) in the world, but from my own experience, they also have great traffic control. And I’m not only talking about Police officers, but also about infrastructure and such.
That, however, wasn’t enough for a British driver who decided to make fun while speeding on the autobahn. He installed a Muppet in the passenger seat, which is where exactly the recording camera focused on. The speed cameras in Germany are made to take photos of drivers who sit in the left side of the vehicle, which in that case was a Muppet.
Here’s what they had to say about the funny Brit:
“The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too. But because this is a British vehicle we can never get a decent picture. The driver has obviously worked this out because he has placed a large puppet in the passenger seat.
This may be an example of the famous British sense of humour but it is still dangerous driving. The driver has been caught on camera on several occasions and the puppet is on the passenger seat every time. We suspect he positions the toy deliberately before accelerating past the camera.”
Funny, huh? Would you do it?
