Default 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..."
