NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) — Norwood police say a man they pulled over for driving 100 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone told officers he was video recording the vehicle’s speedometer to show potential buyers how fast it could go.
Police said on their Facebook page that the driver — whose name was not released — was pulled over at 10 p.m. Friday.
They say the driver immediately acknowledged he was speeding and said he was “selling the car and I wanted to make a video of how fast it will go.”
He showed the officer how he was holding a camera in one hand to record the speedometer while using his other hand to drive.
He will be summoned to court to face charges of speeding, impeded operation and reckless operation.
