Being cooped up in the house with the wife and kids can certainly take its toll on some men. One British man decided that he needed to get out of the house for a little while and went for a spin in his BMW.

All was going well right up to the point in which he was pulled over for doing 170mph. When the officers asked the man why he was going that fast, he told them that he just really needed to get away from the wife and kids for a few and thought a nice drive on the empty highways would do the trick.

Officers explained that even though the roads aren’t filled with motorists, going 170mph is never a good idea. They also reminded the man that only people required to go somewhere on an essential journey should be on the road. Getting away from the wife and kids is not considered an essential journey.

Taking your BMW out for a spin on a 170 mile round trip to have a break from the wife and three kids is also not an essential journey! The roads are much quieter but there are still people who don’t get it. Driver reported on the A30 near Launceston. 6648
