By Posted 6 Jun 2011, 13:21

Have you ever managed to escape a speeding ticket with your fast action silver tongue? We have a list of some good speeding excuses that work to show you now, and we want to hear some of your best excuses in return.

It’s general knowledge that in today’s society it’s fairly easy to escape a speeding ticket, providing you come up with a believable excuse when an officer is about to approach your car. Obviously, the best method is to remain calm but it’s often the speed of your reply which will get you out of trouble.

Over at the Car Connection, they have listed some of the best speeding excuses that drivers had, which were actually rewarded with prizes for the top three. We’ve included the grand prize winning excuse just so you can see what tactic they used:

“I am a funeral director, the law does not bother a hearse on the highway at any speed. But this one time I had a time to be at an out of town crematory, and I was in a van, taking an unembalmed body to be cremated and he got me at 90 mph on the Interstate, when he stopped me and asked what was my hurry, I said, ‘Brother, I have to be at a crematory in an hour or I’ll miss my appointment time and they will be closing for the weekend.’ He said, ‘So …’ I said, ‘Take a whiff in the back, he stuck he head in the side window and jerked it back out and said sir hurry along and be careful.”

That silver tongued car owner received a Garmin StreetPilot 2730 with XM NavTraffic and XM Radio capability for his efforts, but can you top his excuse? If you have managed to escape a speeding ticket with a quick fire excuse, we’d love to hear what you had to say.
