Lamborghini for cops

"Lamborghini has donated a 2 seater Gallardo to highway patrol officers in southern Italy. The car has a 500bhp 5.0liter v-10 engine and can deliver law enforcement at 192mph."
Can you imagine the fights the local police department has over who gets to drive it?

Other funny tidbits:
A man was fined in New Zealand for going 74mph in a 30. His defense: "I'd just washed my car and b/c of my bad back I couldn't chamois it off. I was just doing some air drying." Fine: $300 and six months of walking.

The www.crayola.com website reveals that car tires, once white, changed color when Goodrich discovered that incorporating carbon black pigments-made by the crayola company-made tires last 5 times as long. Tires immediately turned black.

Man why do I always see speeding tickets so cheap everywhere else other than Canada!!!! :shock:

Hahaha in South Africa a guy in an Audi TT was pulled over doing 220 km/h in a 120 km/h zone. His defense, "I got bored!". They issued him with a speeding ticket, but because it's S.A. they don't take your license away, they'd rather let you stay on the road in hopes of catching you again to get revenue.

Yeah but the problem is that when they take their license away, those people won't be on the road getting speeding tickets anymore
