Swiss speeder blames Canada's lack of goats

OTTAWA: A Swiss driver caught speeding in Canada explained that he had been taking advantage of the ability to drive fast without hitting a goat, police said today.

The driver was caught travelling 161km/hr (100m/ph) in a 100km/hr (62m/ph) zone in eastern Ontario on Sunday.

"A motorist from Switzerland, used to driving around hills and mountains, takes advantage of the ability to go faster without risking hitting a goat," read the traffic officer's notes of the incident.

Local police said it was the first time they had ever heard of such an excuse.

"I've never been to Switzerland but obviously they must have a problem with that there," said police spokesman Joel Doiron, adding that in his 20 years of service he had never found a goat on the highways of eastern Ontario.

The Swiss driver's imaginative excuse did him little good. Police issued him a C$360 (US$ 325) speeding ticket.
