I’m sure the police have heard all kinds of excuses for speeding over the years – needing the toilet, not seeing the sign, etc. But this guy just blew them all out of the water with the most outlandish and farfetched excuse we’ve ever heard.
A driver over in Western Australia tried to blame the wind on his breaking the speed limit. The man was caught driving 78mph in a 68mph speed zone through a town in the outback when he was caught by local police and handed a ticket.
The Three Springs police decided to share their citation on their Twitter account, with the caption “and excuse of the day goes to…”

Brilliant. I wish we could see a picture of the guy – I bet he was a right wrong’un. The wind was pushing him? That’s actually a pretty creative excuse right there.
Still, I don’t think it would beat this guy’s explanation for drink driving – he tried to blame it on eating beer battered fish. Nice try pal.
