Illustration for article titled VW Beetle Nailed For 115 MPH Ticket, Year Not Given

How can the news outlets trumpeting this as a story not include the year of this VW Beetle ticketed for 115 MPH on Colorado's I-25 freeway? This is central to the story here because a '49 split window has a much lower chance hitting triple digits than a 2006 sporting a fake daisy in the vase and an 'I heart Puppies' bumper sticker. If a vintage Bug is hitting 115 MPH on even a downhill stretch of highway, that's HUGE news, ticket be damned. If it's a new one though, who cares? Is it too much to ask for precision from the mainstream media? [Channel 7 News]
