Not Happy Darwin Awards nominees

Find them (shouldn't be diificult to trace their clearly visible numberplates ), slap a lifetime driving ban on them, then get them to listen to the many victims of careless driving such as theirs!!!

Grrr.....
GGRRRRR.....!!

A Mitsubishi Evo 320 and a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 have filmed themselves reaching speeds of 186mph on the A423 near Banbury.

The footage has been released on a bootleg DVD called Stu-Pid Riding, and police are investigating it. Although police state the evidence is insufficient for prosecution, they believe they know who the rider and driver are.

The DVD features a speed camera being set alight- with the bikers watching as it burns, a 130 mph stand up wheelie, and plenty of near misses. The footage has been shot from cameras mounted on both the car and bike and show the speedo at all times.

The 80 minute film includes a section on the A423, in which the pair of drivers cover 12.3 miles in 5 minutes and 20 seconds, giving an average speed of 139mph.

From the blurred pictures we have seen, it doesn't even look like they could be bothered to blank out their number plates.

Re: Darwin Awards nominees

Pretty poor, especially when you have
access to so many tracks etc these days.

But also a reflection on the withdrawal of
police patrols in favour of fixed speed cameras.

They ****ing know the chances of getting caught
are minimal.

Re: Darwin Awards nominees

They thought of that and decided to circulate a DVD with all the evidence and their identity - twonks!!

The one saving grace was the () burning of a speed camera!

Had (another) one installed close to home over the weekend. Long straight road with no houses/junctions other than a crossroads with lights halfway down. Only accident I can recall in 7 years of living there was 2 boy racers who killed a pair of bikers (RIP) late one night - yes speed was an issue but nothing a camera will solve. Resulted in limit dropping from 60 to 40.

Sure enough within 24 hours of being put up the cameras displaying a nice line in burning tyres - made a real mess of it - shame

Re: Darwin Awards nominees
