    Top this for a speeding ticket...

    Two British traffic patrol officers from North Berwick
    were involved in an unusual incident while checking for
    speeding motorists on the A1 Great North Road . One of the
    officers used a hand-held radar device to check the speed of
    a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was
    surprised when the speed was recorded at over 300 mph. Their
    radar suddenly stopped working and the officers were not
    able to reset it.

    Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed
    that the radar had in fact latched on to a NATO Tornado
    fighter jet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over
    the Border district, approaching from the North Sea .

    Back at police headquarters the chief constable fired
    off a stiff complaint to the RAF Liaison office.

    Back came the reply in true laconic RAF style:

    "Thank you for your message, which allows us to
    complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to
    know that the tactical computer in the Tornado had detected
    the presence of, and subsequently locked onto, your hostile
    radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back
    to it. Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the
    fully-armed aircraft had also automatically locked onto your
    equipment. Fortunately the pilot flying the Tornado
    recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded
    to the missile systems alert status, and was able to
    override the automated defence system before the missile was
    launched and your hostile radar installation destroyed.

    Good Day..."
