130 MPH YouTube Biker Jailed

 

A British motorcycle enthusiast has been thrown in jail after speeding at up to 130mph and performing dangerous stunts on a public road. The 28-year-old then published a video of his crimes on YouTube.

Sandor Ferenci was seen riding dangerously and performing stunts including wheelies and skids on roads near Banbury, Oxfordshire. A passing motorist noted his license plate and reported him to the police.

When police went to arrest him, he immediately asked them, "is this about the YouTube video?" Police then found his video on YouTube and used it as evidence against him in court; he was jailed for 12 weeks, and banned from driving for 2 years.

Yes and it's probably never a good idea to video yourself committing crimes and then posting them on YouTube.

When you get caught it makes you look a little unremorseful.

for going 130? Weak! Unless he wasn't on the freeway, of course. 130 isn't even all that fast, depending on road/traffic conditions...

He is dumb for admitting anything though. He probably would have gotten off if he hadn't said anything.

That's 130 MPH not KPH. It's 60/70 MPH over the speed limit depending on the road he was in which is fast enough.

There's a video at the source.

Most of his riding was on what in England is called an "A road." These are often single lane in reach direction roads, with speed limits between 50 and 70 MPH depending on the area.

This guy was pulling wheelies on the wrong side of the road at times, and was exceeding the speed limit by up to 70MPH!

That's some pretty excessive speed right there.

Try wheelies at 250 kph, in traffic, and running 300+ kph in traffic for 17 minutes :)
