Driver Blames Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" For His Speeding Ticket

January 8, 2019

There are some songs out there that are great for really getting the adrenaline pumping. Unfortunately for one Canadian driver, rocking out in your car isn't a good enough excuse to get out of a speeding ticket.

So when Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" appeared on the radio, the driver in question put the pedal to the medal and topped out at 145 kph (which is approximately 90 mph).

"Funny enough, our officer knew he was telling the truth," the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of Manitoba said on their Facebook page. How did they know? According to the arresting officer, "he was also listening to it - just at a much slower & safer speed."

Even though both the driver and officer agreed that it is an awesome song, it still wasn't a good enough excuse to get out of a $639 fine.
