Rider Flashed 53 Times, Caught under the Influence of Drugs

A rider in the Aube region in France believed that passing through a front-facing speed trap while riding his motorcycle way above the speed limit was one of the funniest things one can do. So he kept on doing this, knowing that it would be close to impossible to be identified as long as his license plate did not show up in the police photos.
During one year, this funny rider was flashed on no less than 53 occasions. But luck ran out, as the cops finally decided enough is enough and they made their move to catch and identify this fellow. We don't have any information as to whether this strange habit had any regularity.

Suffice to say that the police officers figured out that the guy just won't stop all by itself so they went on to greet him. The road section in cause had a speed limit of 90 km/h (56 mph), a limit that this "brave" rider used to break at various degrees.

He was doing 160 km/h and under the influence of drugs

The cops took to the habitual road this fellow would take ever so often and stopped him on the 29th of June. It was Monday morning, around 7am when the law enforcement officers flashed the 43-year-old rider again, this time doing 160 km/h (100 mph) on the said road section.

His license was suspended right away, and he was taken to a nearby hospital to run some tests. The cops were only too surprised to learn that the medical tests indicated that the chap was under the influence of drugs. Motorbiker says that his bike was also impounded and the guy is now facing a hefty fine and will most likely do some jail time, also.

Stupidity IS infinite!
