Zapping Auto Moto Road diary: Bordeaux residents in Land Rover Discovery Sport
Controlled near Ajaccio (Corse-du-Sud) at 177 km / h instead of 80, this driver could not escape the gendarmes. The latter therefore immediately challenged the crazy driver, but they were far from imagining the excuse that he was going to come out with.
Indeed, facing the soldiers, the driver did not let himself be dismantled and dared to tell them that this speeding was due to the incorrect adjustment of his seat. By having left it too far forward, the position of the driver would have supposedly pushed him to crush the accelerator pedal…
It does not go through
Obviously, the gendarmes did not take this ridiculous excuse into account. Beyond this Facebook post, the driver was probably fined up to 1,500 euros as well as a license suspension of up to 3 years.
In any case, this is what a driver risks after such an excess of speed.
However, the bill may have been higher after this shameful attempt to fool the military with an excuse that came out of nowhere.
To sum up
A badly adjusted seat would be at the origin of this great excess of speed according to this driver. Hard to believe…
