An automatic system tasked with tracking traffic violations spotted a Ford Focus travelling at speed of 1,418 km per hour in Oryol, Russia. For comparison's sake, the speed of sound is about 1,234.8 km per hour.
Earlier, a roadside camera in Tatarstan detected a Hyundai going above the pokey speed limit of 22 km per hour. The interesting thing about this incident is that the car was actually driven by a tow truck, making it impossible for the car to move at all.
A similar accident happened with a Honda, whose owner nearly got fined for his car’s shadow crossing a fuel-line.
According to Russia's General Prosecutor's Office, the traffic police will not take up such cases, so drivers have nothing to worry about.
