Canadian 300 km/h Rider Could Face 5 Years in Jail

Some fellows really don't get it:"if you're doing something illegal, better keep the secret for yourself. Well, posting a video of yourself doing 299 km/h (185.8 mph) on a road sector with much lower speed limits is hardly keeping a low profile.

Randy George Scott, 26, is now facing charges on dangerous operation of a motor vehicle as the Canadian police saw his video on YouTube.

Since it's not exactly hard to trace the whereabouts of the memorable rid, the police got to Scott in a rather short time. The learned that the bike was registered to Scott's mother, and he was unlicensed and uninsured.

A warrant was issued for him in June, and July saw Scott turning himself in. According to CMG , Randy George Scott has "27 driving infractions and five license suspensions." The trial is expected to last three days, as the case still needs some more evidence, some say.

Watch this video and judge whether he's cool or a fool. I go with the latter.
