Motorist fined for giving speed camera the finger despite driving under the limit – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

 A DRIVER celebrates safely passing a speed camera van by giving it the finger with both hands — only to be fined for that instead.

Software developer Ben Baron, 44, was clocked under the speed limit at a “hotspot” where he had been caught before.

But he was sent the photos, along with notification he was being prosecuted for not having proper control of his van.

Dad-of-two Ben, of Great Harwood, Lancs, said: “I was in tears of laughter. I’ll take one for the team with this one because it’s so funny.

“It’s a clear-cut case of me flipping the bird at them with both hands. It’s a bit of kudos. It’s so funny – I’m happy to pay the fine.

“I did a celebratory double-flipping, two-handed, which is obviously now leading to the prosecution.

“I carried on doing it for quite a while – around 200 metres potentially. They’ve got good cameras.

The driver has set up a GoFundMe page to pay the fine[/caption]

“I think looking on the internet the maximum fine is £1,000 for that offence.

“I decided to launch a GoFundMe. Hopefully people with a sense of humour will donate.

“I’ll pay the fine off then give the rest to charity if there’s anything left.”
