Today I spent 4 hours on a Speed Awareness Course offered in some areas as an alternative to points on a licence and a fine. (Cost of course = £80)
Among many other things covered we were asked what excuses we might give an officer of the law for our excessive speed. All, of course, were pretty laughable.
The instructor told us the tale of a hospital consultant who didn't even stop. He just wound down his window and dangled his stethoscope out of it.
The police pulled up alongside him and dangled handcuffs out of theirs.
36 in a 30, in case you're interested.
And not proud.
