No goats? Let ‘er rip!

The driver was caught travelling 96mph on Canada’s busiest highway between Montreal and Toronto on Sunday. The posted speed limit is 60 mph.

“An officer stopped the car for speeding along a straight stretch of road and the driver told him he thought it would be alright to go fast because he wasn’t likely to hit a goat,” said Constable Joel Doiron. “I’ve never been to Switzerland, but I guess there must be a lot of goats there,” he said.

Const. Doiron noted that in his 20 years as a police officer, “nobody’s ever used the lack of goats here as an excuse for speeding”.

Police issued the man a $C360 ticket.
