I see it’s just not the UK that has to put up with arseholes on public transport.
Twenty-six year old Lukasz WisniewskiÂ of Leeds has just been banned for 12 months and ordered to do 200 hours community service after pulling a wheelie on his motorbike as he drove past a mobile speed camera can in Selby, North Yorkshre, at 103mph, whilst overtaking other vehicles.
I bet he thinks what a great idea that was back in June. He was either incredibly unlucky to be pulling a wheelie at high speed at exactly the moment he passed a speed camera van, or just thick; it’s not as if speed cameras are highly disguised. Still, I expect he’s got plenty of time to consider his motorcycling prowess, as he sits on public buses for a the next year.
Gotta be a candidate in the World’s Dumbest Criminals competition…
