Ford Focus driver fined for driving 703 km/h. Yes it happened.

That’s exactly what an Italian woman woke up to when she was sent a speeding fine claiming she zipped past a speed trap at 703 km/h in a 70 km/h zone.

700 km/h speedometer may be an optional extra

That’s almost the cruising speed of a Boeing 747 and probably broke a couple of rules, so she was fined EUR 864 and docked 10 points off her licence

Putting two and two together we know that it’s caused by a faulty camera, but bureaucracy means that she has to pay the fine and then ask for a refund. Crazy stuff for a crazy story.

Anyway, while we suspect none of you have a car capable of 703 km/h, it pays to check MyEG and and settle any outstanding summons you may have - lest you too have your licence blacklisted.
