    "Goat-free roads made me speed"

    [​IMG] Police said goats had not been reported on eastern Ontario's roads

    A Swiss man caught speeding on a Canadian highway has blamed his actions on the absence of goats on the roads.
    The man was caught driving at 161 km/h (100mph) in a 100 km/h (60mph) zone.
    A traffic officer's notes said the Swiss driver had said he was taking advantage "of the ability to go faster without risking hitting a goat".
    Canadian police spokesman Joel Doiron said he had never found a goat on the highways of eastern Ontario in his 20 years of service.
    "Nobody's ever used the lack of goats here as an excuse for speeding," Mr Doiron told the AFP news agency.
    "I've never been to Switzerland, but I guess there must be a lot of goats there," he said. The driver was ordered to pay a fine of C$360 ($330; £175) for speeding.

    Hey, if you don't rubberneck when a guy is in the ditch pumping on a goat, you don't rubberneck at all.
