Should This Pigeon Be Given the Speeding Ticket?

Bocholt, Germany — It was a peaceful February afternoon when suddenly a pigeon flew down a residential street at a speed of 45km/hr (28mph) — faster than the established speed limit of 30 km/hr. Now THAT’s fast.

As soon as the pigeon flew past the mobile speed camera, the camera immediately took a picture of the said pigeon.

While this happened 3 months ago, the town hall of Bocholt said that they had taken some time to assess the photos.

The penalty for speeding is €25 (£21;$28). What do you think? Should this pigeon be fined for speeding?

I don't know much about the types of pigeon.
But for the homing pigeon (which is incorrectly categorized as English carrier pigeon) can have an average speed ranging from 97 km/hr (60 miles/ hr) to 160 km/hr (100 miles/ hr).
The South African pigeon, on the other hand, according to data gathered, has an average speed of 30 miles/ hr.
Was the pigeon here just warming up?
