Teen jailed for 140 mph YouTube clip


Not the brightest of ideas


A Scottish teen was arrested last thursday after posting a YouTube video of his 140 mph ride on the A76 in Scotland.

Driving an ancient Ford Escort at over 140 mph is never a good idea, especially if you leave the video for everyone to see and get nicked for it.

"Not only did he endanger his own life, but that of other road-users. It is unacceptable, and to post a recording of such driving on the Internet is entirely stupid", said Sergeant Scott McLachlan, from the Roads Policing Unit at Dumfries and Galloway police, and we couldn't agree more with the Internet related comment.
