From the Sun, 15 Sep 04 108mph tank driver let-off FULL NEWS INDEX AN Army captain escaped a ban after speeding at 108mph on a motorway — so he can drive armoured vehicles in Iraq. Tank commander Richard Moger, 27, would normally have lost his licence after being nabbed at that speed on the M4 in South Wales. But he told a court it would mean he couldn’t drive British Army vehicles when he returns to Basra with the Household Cavalary. He added: “The car I was driving was powerful and accelerated beyond the point I was aware.” Moger, of Chislehurst, Kent, was fined £300 by JPs in Newport, Gwent, but kept his licence. Bench chairman David Henley said: “This is a one-off. We’re convinced this won’t happen again.” He'll be driving will he? I take it then his name will be on the workticket, that he has "Tank" on his FMT600, that when REME pick up 20 A-jobs on his tank he'll be at the front of the queue to complete them. My fat hairy buttocks he will! He got into a powereful car and didn't realise it? Who lends out powerful cars to muppets, or was it his own and he just hadn't noticed? He drove down the M4 in South Wales(heavily policed), not aware of the speed he was doing, with plod hot on his heels and he didn't notice them ? Stupid, reckless or both? Either way sounds ideal Cavalty officer material.
