A motorcyclist who shot past a school crosswalk at 160 mph has been sentenced to three years in prison. He's a former racer with a rap sheet for recklessness who says he was late for work. Yeah, that old line. [NBC]
The way the title is worded, it gives you the impression he went to jail over a speeding ticket. He didn't go to jail for speeding, he went to jail for aggravated assault and evading police officers. He evaded the cops by speeding, but that isn't the charge that landed him in jail.
Anyway, its good to see they made an example out of him. Maybe this will send a message to all the other squids who think they are king of the road.
