Speeding isn’t good. It can cause accidents, get you a hefty fine and anger other drivers.
Apparently, for this 16 year old boy, breaking the speed limit wasn’t really a choice.
After enjoying some spicy hot wings the boy was on his way home when he realised he really quite desperately needed the toilet. So he had to move a little faster shall we say.
The 16-year-old’s choice in speed was caught by police doing 105mph (170 kilometers an hour). Yikes.
Driving a Chevrolet Camaro in Manitoba, Canada, the kid was approached and questioned by a police officer, who obviously asked him the reason behind him speeding home.
This 16-year-old’s excuse for going 170 km/h in a Camaro? “Too many hot wings & needed a bathroom”. Fined $966 for speeding + $203 for driving w/o a supervising driver. Absolutely #noexcuses for that kind of speed. #rcmpmb pic.twitter.com/oXe78AAUgc

A Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman explained:
“This 16-year-old’s excuse for going 170 km/h in a Camaro?
“‘Too many hot wings & needed a bathroom.'”
Canadian police were not impressed and slapped the boy with a fine $966 Canadian dollars (approx £571) for the speeding.
Also, in Canada, you’re not usually allowed to drive without the supervision of someone who is at least over the age of 18. So another $203 Canadian dollars (approx £120) was issued..
Of course, people on Twitter shared their thoughts:
I’m sure he’ll never make the mistake of ordering hot wings from the same restaurant again.
Need government regulation on hot wings. No need for wings that hot! Dangerous. New government agency to monitor and prevent disasters like this.
