Moron of the Morning: Terrible Excuse For Driving 99 MPH

July 24, 2018

The California Highway Patrol said a driver caught going 99 mph told a trooper the radar readout “must be the current temperature.”

The CHP’s Oakland station tweeted that a vehicle was stopped by a trooper for going 99 mph in a 65-mph zone on Interstate 980. “I wasn’t driving that fast,” the CHP quoted the driver as saying, leading the trooper to show him the read-out on his radar device.

“The display must be the current temperature,” the driver responded. The CHP said the driver had to eventually concede. “After an awkward silence for a few seconds he signed his citation,” the CHP said.
