Do you ever find yourself driving down the road listening to a rip-roaring rock song and next thing you know you’re looking down at your speedometer only to find out you’ve been unknowingly booking it at 90 mph in a 50 mph zone, or even worse you get pulled over for speeding and you have to come up with some excuse on the fly for why you were speeding that DOESN’T involve the part where you lost track of how fast you were going because you were rocking out to some classic rock?

Yup, we’ve all been there. It happens to the best of us. It just comes with the territory of listening to the best kind of music out there, am I right? Well, it unfortunately didn’t work out so benevolently for a driver from Manitoba, Canada…


Yes, you read that right. Listening to Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart” made this guy book it at 90 mph, (or 145kmh), which ultimately resulted it a $639 fine (which equates to $481 American).

Whoever this man is that was gouged with this massive fine, our hearts are with you, sir.

Like I said, this kind of thing happens to the best of us. But man, this guy got one HELL of a fine for it. Maybe when he gets to court he can sooth the judge with “Home Sweet Home”!
