There is no such passenger car that can achieve speeds of 423 mph, but authorities in Belgium believed an Opel Astra was.
What happened? It appears a coding error spewed the unbelievable speed before the citation was mailed out to the driver. Belgian authorities acknowledged the error.
However, the driver didn’t walk away from it all. The actual speed clocked was still over the road’s speed limit at 37 mph. It appears the driver won’t have the fine entirely waved off, but perhaps he or she can have a laugh about it sometime in the future.
