Here's one guy that gets the coveted Darwin Award. A 36 year old Frenchman got caught riding his Kawasaki with a slew of events.

1. He was speeding, doing 253 kph in a 90 kph zone.
2. His motorcycle was not limited to the legal limit of 100 hp, but had 175 hp.
3. He was riding under influence of marijuana.

Note
: In France, all motorcycles are limited to 100 hp power but some quaint and antiquated law. Getting caught with a bike that has more than 100 hp means serious trouble.

Speeding Motorcycle

For his defense he stated that 1) he has motorcycle in his blood and 2) he didn't realize he was going fast. What makes this even more Darwinian, is that a) he's the father of a 1 month old baby and more importantly, b) he had a serious scooter accident 10 years earlier whereby he had 80% of his body burned. So you'd expect him to take riding a motorcycle a bit more carefully....

As is the case with these kind of traffic offenses, he was immediately sentenced to 4 months jail, his license has been revoked for 18 months (after which he will need to take the driving tests again), his motorcycle has been confiscated and he was fined €600.

Personally, I think he should not take the motorcycle license but use a stroller.
