Speeding driver ‘taking advantage of goat-free road’

A Swiss driver caught speeding in Canada has explained that he had been taking advantage of the ability to drive fast without hitting a goat.

The driver was caught travelling at 161 kilometres per hour in a 100 kilometres per hour zone in eastern Ontario on Sunday.

“A motorist from Switzerland, used to driving around hills and mountains, takes advantage of the ability to go faster without risking hitting a goat,” read the traffic officer’s notes of the incident.

Local police say it is the first time they have ever heard of such an excuse.

“I’ve never been to Switzerland but obviously they must have a problem with that there,” police spokesman Joel Doiron, said.

Mr Doiron adds that in his 20 years of service he has never found a goat on the highways of eastern Ontario.

The Swiss driver’s imaginative excuse did him little good – police issued him a with a speeding ticket anyway.
