Fight Against Maturity

383mph? That’s some motorcycle.

An Italian motorcyclist is appealing after he lost his license when speed cameras clocked him at an impossible 383 mph.

Paolo Turina, 26 – who also copped a £200 fine – claims the speed camera was clearly so defective the charge should never have been brought.

“If I could go that fast I’d enter my bike in the MotoGP world championships. Valentino Rossi would not stand a chance. What did they think they were clocking – a jet fighter?” asked Mr Turina, of Cernusco Lombardone.

The cops say the camera was working fine but the clerk who wrote it up wasn’t.
