Some car drivers seem to have trouble with their accelerator.

Last Wednesday, a motorist was stopped by police on Hagerups vei in Bergen for driving 101 kph in a 40 kph zone. But the man is in for more than just a fine and points on his licence.

“It means that his licence will be confiscated for at least two years, and he also risks an unconditional jail sentence,” Jens Kleppe in the traffic division at the central station told NRK.

With two speed humps on the stretch of road, he obviously wasn’t put off by the sleeping policemen.
