Is it sad that I have done this?
A Man's Excuse For Doing 100 Miles-An-Hour In A 50 MPH Zone? He Was Trying To Dry Off His Car
Last week, the police in Naperville, Illinois, pulled over 24-year-old Lucas Wright in his 2006 Honda Accord. Lucas was doing ONE HUNDRED miles-an-hour in a 50 mph zone. And he gave them a perfectly logical explanation . . . at least in his eyes.
--The police say that Lucas told them, quote, "He'd just gotten his car washed and he was trying to dry it off." And he wasn't lying . . . when they checked out his car, it was, in fact, wet. And it was still drying when they impounded it and towed it away.
--Lucas was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for going 40 miles-per-hour or more over the posted limit.
FYI: I, as a car washing maniac, have done a really inappropriate speed to dry off a car and have been pulled over for it... don't judge!
