Court Rules “Diarrhea” Insufficient Excuse For Speeding

Posted in Emissions, Newsworthy, Traffic, Travel by Suzanne Denbow | October 31st, 2008 | 1 Response |

Yesterday, a Swedish court ruled that a 49-year-old woman’s severe case of diarrhea did not constitute valid cause for violating the speed limit. Clocked doing 53 mph in a 43 mph zone, the women explained to the officer who initiated the traffic stop that she was forced to exceed the speed limit due to her unfortunate digestive problems. Although federal law does allow the speed limit to be broken in cases of emergency, events that constitute an “emergency” are strictly limited to those that endanger a person’s life or involve a serious a crime.

Effectively calling shenanigans on the “emergency bowel movement” excuse, the woman was found guilty as charged and ordered to pay the traffic fine.
