A motorist in Manitoba has learned the hard way that you can’t use Mötley Crüe‘s high-octane classic “Kickstart My Heart” as an excuse to drive well over the speed limit.
As the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Manitoba posted on Facebook, a driver was pulled over after clocking in at 145 km/h. His excuse was that the Dr. Feelgood cut was on the radio.
The RCMP wrote, “Funny enough, our officer knew he was telling the truth, since he was also listening to it – just at a much slower & safer speed,” revealing that the driver was then handed a $639 fine.
Perhaps a more shocking takeaway is that the driver was able to get a Dodge Caravan up to that speed, but when the Crüe is blaring, sometimes the lead foot has no other option.
