    Guy Claims Dad Was Driving His Speeding Car But He's Caught On Speed Camera Flicking A 'V' And His Dad Died Four Years Earlier

    Pro tip for all drivers: don't do this.

    Prior to his recent charge for speeding, Vasille Georgiou, a hotelier from Plymouth, had been accused of speeding twice before. But it was ok, because on both occasions he had an excuse.

    According to the Plymouth Herald, he'd told prosecutors it was his father.

    The paper reports: "Georgiou was sent a letter but nominated a Stavros Georgiou in [Cyprus] as the driver. The form was sent back apparently signed by that man as the driver – and the case was dropped."

    Police then looked into Georgiou's case, and were told by authorities that he'd been dead since 2008.

    They showed a picture in court from the third time Geogiou had been speeding, in 2012. When he'd decided to do this.

    Here he is doing 59mph in a 40mph zone in Plymouth. And saying hello to a police officer who's taking his picture.

    And that, kids, is probably the most failtastic way you can get jailed for four months and banned from driving for eight months.
