"Do you know how fast you were going?"
"No officer, but I'm guessing it wasn't what was posted."

That didn't work for us and the "I'm not driving, I'm qualifying" t-shirt certainly didn't help either. We've all heard some great excuses for speeding that worked in getting some scofflaw off the hook and kept them out of the local hoosegow. Well, here's a story about a recent contest to find the best excuses out there.

The Car Connection has finished tabulating votes and awarding prizes, and has released the stories of the winners for its Speeding Excuses contest. After receiving and judging nearly 2,000 stories, the winners were given GPS systems or XM radios. The top three cover a funeral director, someone married to the law and a case of mistaken identity. Read them for yourself through the link.

We'd love to hear some of your favorites as well, whether from firsthand experience or through a friend of a coworker's uncle in-law. No prizes besides seeing your name in pixels.
