One More Reason Not To Take Reuters Seriously

r– A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of having posted a video of himself on YouTube driving at speeds of more than 140 mph, police said Thursday.

The car, a Ford Escort, was filmed on the A76 single-carriageway road in southwest Scotland.

A Ford Escort going 140 MPH? I don’t think so.

    A typo makes sense, but that is a huge error.

    You know, 140 kilometers per hour is only about 90 MPH; Scotland uses the metric system, so perhaps that was a typo.

    I know (from having done it) that both a 91 Ford Escort and a 94 Mercury Tracer (essentially the same car) can hit 90 miles per hour.

    Downhill maybe?
