France: You’ve Got To Love Lawyers, Specially When You Screw Up

Lawyers are the butt of many nasty jokes, but at times you really need them. In France two men really needed them, and the lawyers delivered. Here's what happened.

The two guys (not friends or known to each other), one 26 years old, the other 44 years, were arrested because they were racing their cars against each other. The cars used were a souped-up Volkswagen Golf against a Ferrari. The cops clocked them doing 244 kph. That's enough to get arrested, forfeit your car and driving license and spend a lot of time in a jail cell with a cell mate called Bubba.

Speeding on Autobahn

So they reached out to some wise lawyers. And the lawyers went to work, and this was their defense:

1. The radar gun was not homologated for those speeds
2. The handheld gun is not accurate at high speeds since it needs to follow he super fast cars by hand
3. But the stinger was that how could a cop capture a car speeding at 244 kph, reset the laser gun (an imperative by law, the gun needs to be reset after each usage), and then re-target the other car. At an alleged speed of 244 kph, there could not be enough time to frame the second one.

So there is no way the cops could have determined that both cars were speeding at those speeds, and if they couldn't do it for both, they probably couldn't do it for one.

The defendants pleaded that they were indeed speeding, but not even close to the speeds alleged by the cops. So the judge decided since there were way too many valid points brought forward by the lawyers, that he cancelled the fines, returned the cars and licenses and sent the two happy men on their merry way.

I know if I get caught for speeding (again), I know which lawyers I will use.
