  • Motorist receives ticket 9 years after offense date

    Speeding ticket a little slow

    July 12 2007 at 11:52AM

    A motorist was sent a speeding ticket for a car he has never owned, nine years after the alleged offence.

    Derrick Thomas was told he had driven a Mercedes at 60mph (about 97kph)in a 40mph (about 64kph) zone in Essex. The letter was postmarked December 1998, a month after the offence.

    Essex Police said the matter would not be pursued, reports Metro.

    Royal Mail claimed it was unlikely that it was responsible for the letter's late arrival.

    "I thought it was a joke. I've only ever driven BMWs since 1989," said Mr Thomas, 71, of Ipswich.
    I miss you, Dave.
