Fined For Speeding In 86-Year-Old Car!

 

Updated : Apr 1, 2009

A motorist in Coventry has been fined for speeding in an 86-year-old Model T Ford, which has no speedometer.

A speed camera caught Dave Stanisfield, 67, doing 35mph in a 30mph zone on his way home from a vintage car show. He said: "I didn't think it could do 30mph. When it was new it could do 46mph but it's nearly 90 years old now. I couldn't believe it when I got the letter through the post. I was shocked."

Mr Stanisfield, a semi-retired mechanic from Coventry, went to court in a bid to avoid a £60 fine and three points on his licence, however he couldn’t prove he wasn’t speeding because the car has no speedometer. He said: "I'm no boy racer or Lewis Hamilton. I'm a 67-year-old man in an 86-year-old car. I don't go racing about the place."

However after being faced with the risk of further court costs, he pleaded guilty to speeding at Worcestershire Magistrates' Court. He said: "In the end it was the wrong thing going to court because I still got three points and ended up paying £138 in fines and court costs."

VeryHappyPig thinks 35mph might be a world record for a Model T Ford!
