Did the punishment fit the crime?

Okay so we all speed even if its just a few miles over the limit, I just think that 10 weeks in jail and a ban of three years from driving is over kill. I mean the guy did not kill anyone nor did he wreck the car. Heck I think that this guy should be given free access to the track to let him feed his need for speed perhaps a small fin of $100 and 3 to 4 hours tops in jail

Hey gixxerbill this guy was just having fun I am sure why do you think that the Police arested him?

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cg...i081455D33.DTL

(09-24) 08:14 PDT LONDON, United Kingdom (AP) --


The fastest driver ever convicted of speeding in Britain was jailed for 10 weeks Monday after he was clocked at 172 mph in his company's Porsche.


Tim Brady, 33, was caught on Jan. 27 driving the 98,000 pound ($198,000) Porsche 911 Turbo which he took without permission from his employer, luxury car rental firm HelpHire PLC.


The previous record 156 miles per hour was set by car dealer Jason McAllister in 2003.


Brady had nagged his boss take the Porsche out the day before but was repeatedly told no, the court heard. He returned the next day and took the car anyway.


Judge David Morton called the act "criminally self-indulgent."


"(You were) utterly thoughtless of the danger you might be creating for the innocent," he told Brady.


Brady, who admitted dangerous driving at a hearing last month, was banned from driving for three years and will have to take a new driving test before taking to the road again.


He quit his job a day after he was caught near Kingston Bagpuize, about 60 miles west of London.

Borrowed = to take or obtain with the promise to return the same. He had not intention of keeping the vehicle in question

yes, i don't want someone to take my bike without my permission, go top it out, and get caught doing so to only serve 4 hours and pay $100... even if he did plan on bringing it back, it's mine and that someone did not have permission

I think that this guy was taking the initiative as an employee to test drive the car to ensure that it was safe at high speeds. I think that he should have been promoted, lets not confuse this situation the guy worked at this company he was not a stranger off the street who broke in and stole the car.

I agree to an extent, BUT he was told repedadly the day before NO several times by his boss, so I think if he hadnt quit I woulda fired his , just for disobeying me, not necessarily for the speeding, I mean can U imagine Brandon doing that on say my 1098, I think Id have to kill him, especially if he asked several times and I said no repedadly

Dear Tim if you were at the race track would you really deny Brandon the change to ride you bike if so that's just mean. If he were to accidentally get lost and wonder onto the street I mean I am sure that he would come back as soon as he could get some decent direction from the locals
