Speeding in reverse

Bludenz: A German man has been fined after being caught by a speed camera driving 35 mph in a 25 mph zone while in reverse.

Heinz Erlauf, 42, from Stuttgart was fined 20 Euros after police saw the photo of his Mercedes C Class zooming backwards down a residential street in Bludenz, Austria.

A spokesman for the local police said, That is the first time any of us have ever seen a driver get flashed by a radar while reversing.
