“Some things last forever – others not for an hour,” German police wrote in their statement.
The 18-year-old was returning from his successful driving test when officers in the town of Hemer checked his car with a laser speed gun.
He was clocked travelling almost twice the speed limit – at 95km/h (60mph) in a 50km/h (30mph) zone.
The man had four friends in the car with him, regional police in Märkischer Kreis said – and speculated that perhaps he was trying to impress with his driving skills. Now he faces a ban for 4 weeks and can only receive his licence back after ‘expensive retraining’
Safe driving, from Britannia!
