A SWISS driver blamed Canada's lack of goats as possible roadside obstacles for his speeding through the countryside after police nabbed him, an official said.
The driver was caught travelling 161km/h on Canada's busiest highway between Montreal and Toronto on Sunday.
The posted speed limit is 100km/h.
�An officer stopped the car for speeding along a straight stretch of road and the driver told him he thought it would be alright to go fast because he wasn't likely to hit a goat,� said Constable Joel Doiron.
�I've never been to Switzerland, but I guess there must be a lot of goats there,� he said.
Const. Doiron noted that in his 20 years as a police officer, �nobody's ever used the lack of goats here as an excuse for speeding�.
Police issued the man a $C360 ($430) fine.
