Some years ago, before speed cameras were as prevalent as they are now, I was driving down the M5 and was doing a fair old speed myself, when I noticed a car coming up behind me VERY fast. I moved over to let it overtake and just managed to glimpse the numberplate of the Porsche 911 turbo as it hurtled past at (I guessed) something approaching 150 mph - TUR 80.
A few weeks later, I happened to notice a small ad in a Sunday paper - 'Numberplate for sale: TUR 80... on written off Porsche'. Whilst of course hoping that no-one was hurt in the incident, I did feel a certain sense of poetic justice.
