Man fined for speeding at 546 mph in 1-litre Golf
Traffic cops in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, have just fined a man for driving at 880 km/h (546mph) on a public road.

What’s even more amazing, is the driver Rafael de Andrade was in a 1-litre VW Golf. Yes, really!

Driver Andrade is refusing to pay the fine, as he believes there was an error with the local plods speed cameras. Err… no shit Sherlock.

But none the less, the Brazilian authorities are sticking to guns (speed guns that is) and are demanding Andrade pays up. Bummer.

Luckily for Andrade, his lawyer has plenty of experience of overturning silly Brazilian speeding fines, as in 2001 he was accused of speeding at 4,800 km/h. That’s over 2,982 mph!

And what was he driving? Yep you guessed it, a VW Golf.

So next time you get pissed off with traffic cops, spare a thought for the poor Brazilians.
