A Ticket for Driving the Speed Limit

A speed camera near Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia, caught 24-year-old Zac Murray driving at 100 km/h and he was sent a $151 ticket for speeding. However, the speed limit on the roadway is 100 km/h (62 mph). Murray was a bit puzzled, but saw the humor in the situation. He issued an apology.

"I am deeply saddened by my actions and believe I am just as bad as those ingrates who are downloading Dallas Buyers Club and/or Game of Thrones," he wrote.

"Clearly I did not think of the children or consider the consequences of my actions as I drove at an alleged speed of 100km in a 100km zone.

"I hope you can all forgive me. But most importantly I hope I can forgive myself for the monster I have become."

Police in Queensland were surprised, too, and canceled the ticket. Further investigation showed that when the speed camera was being calibrated and tested, it automatically issued two tickets to drivers before it was officially deployed. -via Arbroath
