my husband was driving fast (not terribly fast i was in the car with him) and got pulled over and got his license taken away for a YEAR due to speeding. He was pleasantly nice to the cop and this was his first time being stopped. That was NOT a fun year i tell ya... Not sure why they charged him so harshly... but it can happen

What i found amusing and oh so Israeli is the fact that they factor in the 'Practical limit' as well as the legal one. I mean in America you also don't get pulled over for going less than 10 over the limit but its not that official...

What a country, you can get locked up for speeding??!

They took his American license away?

How did they penalize him?
any country will lock you up if you go fast enough

I actually remember doing the same on Coney Island driving in a car with plates from a different state.  By a red light an undercover cop car pulls up and tells me that in the state of N.Y. the speed limit is 30..I said thanks and we drove off  ;D

This was actually more insidious; the cop was waiting at a toll plaza just as the speed limit went down to 30 before my friend had a chance to slow down.

If you read the article using google translate it says 130 mph instead of 130 kph
sorry in cold NY my sense of humor wasn't cranked up enough this morning. :)
