A Plymouth resident caught speeding went to extraordinary lengths to avoid a speeding conviction.
Roger Moore, caught speeding at 51mph in a 40 zone, faked CCTV footage to try and prove he was at home with his vehicle at the time of the incident.
He told courts that he had returned the hire car that he was caught speeding in and that the staff must have a vendetta against him.
He provided CCTV footage which had the date and time he was said to have been speeding. However, photography experts analysed the footage and decided the shadows cast across Moore’s drive were inconsistent for that time of year.
So rather than the £60 fine and possible three points on his licence, he ended up with a 16-week jail sentence, was ordered to pay £2000 in fines and was suspended from driving for two years.
