Did you hear about the dog that got a speeding ticket?

Apr 11, 2022

There’s no punch line because this really happened! A dog really got a speeding ticket!  A man in Germany was shocked when he opened up a letter informing him he’d gotten a speeding ticket, and his dog was pictured behind the wheel. The ticket was for about $52, and the driver explained to The Dodo that the dog had been riding alongside him, and then hopped into his lap just as the traffic camera snapped the photo. The driver’s nephew explained, “Normally, the dog wears a special car belt for safety. That day, my uncle forgot to put it on him, and the dog came to cuddle him [as he was driving]. The funny part is, he was in his lap for just three seconds.” He added that his uncle could have contested the speeding ticket, arguing lack of proof that it was him driving, but he went ahead and paid it.
