UK: Speed Camera Issues 420 MPH Ticket
A Wales, UK speed camera claims a cab driver exceeded the speed limit by 390 MPH.

420 MPH ticket
A speed camera in Wales mailed a ticket to a cab driver claiming his 1995 Vauxhall Cavalier was speeding in a 30 MPH zone at 420 MPH. Tom Matthews, 34, had been driving a woman home at 2:20 in the morning on November 17 when his car was photographed.

"If they insist I was going that fast I should be a Grand Prix driver," Matthews told The Sun. "I'm wasted in taxis."

Matthews, however, does not hold the speed camera record. In Australia last year a speed camera claimed an automobile reached 690 MPH. In 2005, a Manchester, UK speed camera issued a ticket to a man for driving 800 MPH in a 30 zone.
