There are times in everyone's life when you have an idea that sounds brilliant when explained in the audience of friends, but in practice is "exposed" as pure idiocy. The passenger of a BMW X5 gave a Cramlington, UK speed camera an uncensored view of his backside in an obvious attempt at humor, but in the end (no pun intended) the stunt could result in some hefty fines. Since local authorities weren't amused by the Braveheart salute, the passenger could receive tickets for public indecency and for not wearing a seat belt. Well, that is if the driver is willing to rat on his or her offending comrade.
While we admit this is kind of funny at first blush, mostly because we never before noticed that a BMW grille looks a little like a human butt, mooning a speed camera is stupid for a couple reasons. First, it's not cool to expose yourself in public. That's the kind of thing that will get you on a sex offender list if you're not careful. Second, speed cameras are really good at taking pictures of cars, giving authorities the plates of the vehicle as they pass through intersections. Third, and perhaps most important, why would the owner of a Bimmer want someone to press their bare ass up against their windshield? Lets just hope someone remembered to sanitize the soiled glass. Thanks for the tip, everyone!

      I'm going to say I support this man's actions 100%. I don't want to live in a world where nobody on earth is willing to moon authority every now and again. Of course I don't support rampant disregard for any authority, but c'mon, this is priceless.

      Did he have his name on his butt? How do they know whose butt they were fining?

      Ha, it seems his friend doesn't really care about the butt print, then why stop there? Draw a smiley face on it.

      Yo, Nathan! I don't know what this story has to do with gas prices, but since you started it I'll tell you that if you want lower gas prices, strangle an environmentalist. They're the ones standing in the way of increasing supply.

      If this idiot doesn't care who sees his fat, ugly backside...the officials should strip him down naked, put a harness around his neck to hold his head upright and parade him up and down a busy intersection for all to see. Do this everyday for 6 months...return him back to his jail cell without any clothes. All you mortal bafoons should remember it was man's fault in the very beginning...it was a sin to be naked..that's why GOD killed the animal to make a covering for man's naked body.

      Speed cams, all police cams, are evil. Dont vote for anyone who does not pledge to restore your constitutional rights, which means you should Never vote for any Republican OR Democrat ever again for Any office. Deny power to the enemies of your freedom. Decide NOW - will your children be Slave or Free?

      Here in some parts of Alabama and the South there are laws against this type of behavior. try that in my area, and that that clown would have both his face and tail posted on the cover of the local newspaper and paraded in handcuffs as the top story on the local tv station. And he wouldn't be getting out of jail for a long time, either. He may get away with it in California, however.

      Nice plug for your product!! You're an idiot! I'm sure everyone who's reading posts here want to sift through your ad. Your name even reflects your product.

      Good thing his other organ was not exposed as well. It would have looked like a small BMW ‘double nut’ grill! =)
