No, it can't go that fast. Reliant Robin driver's speeding charges dropped
Maltby drives a Reliant Robin.
The aforementioned independent accident investigator got Maltby off the hook when he told the court that a Reliant Robin is incapable of reaching 70 mph when carrying three passengers, and that furthermore, its fiberglass body wouldn't throw off sparks anyway. Looking at the three-wheeled Reliant Robin (above), we have a hard time imagining one getting up to 70 with just the driver on board, much less a fully-laden one hooning it up with a wheel in the air at that same speed. In any case, Mr. Maltby walked free after a three-day trial, throwing reporters a "Lovely jubbly!" as he made his exit.
