For the substitution of a road sign the driver paid the freedom

July 7 2006

The driver, who established the mark for the speed limit to 40 miles per hour in a 30-mile zone, has been sentenced to imprisonment. John Hopwood this way hoped to avoid fines for speeding on the road from Manchester to Rochdale, where traffic police stopped him for two days in a row.

Yesterday ended the hearing Hopwood in the criminal division of the High Court in Manchester.

The court found the driver guilty of substituting a road sign and was sentenced to periodic imprisonment for 56 days. This means that every Friday Hopwood will arrive in the detention center for prisoners, which will remain until 17:00 Sunday.

At the hearing, Hopwood pleaded guilty. Perhaps this circumstance was the mitigating factor in sentencing. Judge Anthony Ensor told the defendant that he committed a "serious crime".

"It was a foolish act, doomed to failure" - added the judge, writes The Sun.
