Cop tells off 195mph Ferrari driver for doing just 25mph
London, May 16 (ANI): One often hears about people landing themselves in trouble with traffic police for breaking the speed limit, but has anyone ever seen a person being reprimanded for driving slowly.
Well, 58-year-old businessman Denis Evans, of Southerndown, South Wales, is one such man who was stopped in his 195mph Ferrari by a top cop, and told off for going too slowly.
Assistant Chief Constable Nick Croft was off duty when he saw Evans driving his 164,000-pound car at 25mph in a 40mph village zone.
Denis was allowed to go after a roadside check on the car's ownership.
"I was flabbergasted when he said I wasn't going fast enough. The road is badly lit, with a nasty bend, and often has sheep on it. I felt 25 was safe," the Sun quoted him as saying.
Locals in Ogmore-by-Sea want the 40mph limit lowered.
Defending Croft's move, a police spokeswoman said: "The Assistant Chief Constable was following the Ferrari, which was going very slowly, and he thought, 'What if it was stolen?'" (ANI)
