Italian white van man gets done for 764mph

Italian police clock van nudging the speed of sound

IN Italy, a van driver is facing a £140 fine and points on his licence for nudging the sound barrier in the town of Orio, Italy.

The driver of the Fiat Doblo was recorded by the local Carabinieri at 1,230km/h, slightly exceeding the 90km/h limit.

The paperwork, pictured below, was signed off by two police officials before being sent onto the driver of the Fiat van.

If you come across a Fiat Doblo at the lights, our advice is not to try and race it off the line.
