A 22-year-old guy from Toronto named Dalmar Ali was pulled over on a freeway in Richfield, Minnesota earlier this month for going over 100 miles an hour.
And he told the cops it wasn’t his fault, he’s just CANADIAN, and got confused.
See, they use kilometers per hour, not miles per hour. So he thought he was going 100 KILOMETERS an hour, which is only about 62 miles an hour.
Unfortunately the cops didn’t let him get away with blaming the metric system. He got a ticket for speeding, and he’ll have to go to court in September.
