This acceleration monster was trapped by his own handiwork:

A Staffordshire county councillor has been caught speeding - with the mobile speed camera he bought for the local police force.

Robert Marshall had paid for the detector with money given to him by the council to spend on good causes.

He was caught doing 42 miles per hour in a 30-miles per hour zone but said he was glad to know the equipment was working.

Lying bastard.

(Thanks to Rob Corr.)

Seems like he omitted to register his car's rego number on the list of those of other councillors and council employees who are exempt from by damned by the force of the nasty rules they otherwise pass, which rules , of course, are to be enforced against anyone else but themselves.
This applies to the communard tards in Spring St.
