A Man is Caught Doing 139 Miles-Per-Hour In a 55 Zone
The hook of this story isn’t that police in caught a man driving 139 in a 55. That’s crazy, but not even close to crazy enough to end up on our radar. The reason we’re talking about this is because the guy was doing 139 in a 55 . . . IN A NEON. He was almost tripling the speed limit in one of the most generic, boring cars of the last three decades. We can’t even believe a Neon has a speedometer that goes to 139. The man is 23 years old and his name wasn’t released. He was driving through Saguenay, Quebec, Canada when he was caught. The car was a 2003 Dodge SX 2.0 they changed the name of the Neon to the “SX” in Canada that year in an attempt to get rid of the Neon stigma. It didn’t work, and Neons haven’t been made since 2005. The driver is looking at fines of $2,137 for speeding, $274 for worn out tires, and $1,267 because he had a PASSENGER at the time and was putting that person’s life in danger. He could also lose his license for two years. He was not under the influence at the time.
