Biker Given 39 Points. Yup. Thirty-Nine ...

No, I couldn't believe it either. I mean, I like going fast(ish) but to be caught speeding seven times in one month, will get this: a ban, a fine and 39 points on your license. And no chance of cheap insurance. Ever. Until the day you die. Which, for this guy won't be too long. Well, so long as he carries his donor card - at all times - that's okay. I guess it's his life.

I don't condone speeding for many reasons, including the obvious one of likely imminent death. Guys (and girls) - don't give the police any more reason to harass us further!

Still, I see that speeders face even greater punishment in Iran, where they get the whip out.
