In case the title sounds more like a Guy Ritchie or Mel Brooks movie, you'll be surprised it only reflects the reality.
Such a rider was apprehended by the French cops in Sotteville-lès-Rouen, France. The officers noticed a guy riding a scooter without wearing a helmet, talking over the phone and graciously running the red light at an intersection.

The police gave chase and caught up with the fellow. When asked, he could not provide any papers to prove ownership of the Burgman 125 he was riding... only because the machine had been reported stolen near Paris, on January 28, 120 km (74 miles) away.

As if things were not already bad enough, the chap also had a stolen computer in his backpack and was... erm, drunk. And all these happened a quarter past midnight, February 3rd.

The words motorcycle safety make me laugh now...
