Technology is making it harder and harder to get away with being an idiot. Just ask one Japanese executive. Mikami Tadao, the 38-year-old president of a manufacturing company based in Hiroshima who recently found himself behind bars for grossly exceeding the speed limit in his Lamborghini Gallardo two years ago. Tadao reportedly took his exotic through a local tunnel at around 97 miles per hour, which is around 60 mph over the posted speed limit. Odds are he would have gotten away with the stunt were it not for the fact that he recorded the antics for posterity and uploaded the clip to YouTube.

Hiroshima police arrested Tadao for the offense, and he now faces a slew of traffic violations. Officers have also seized his personal computer along with the videos he's taken. Tadao reportedly wrote in the video description that he wanted to enjoy the sense of speed and the sound of the Gallardo in the tunnel. Something tells us he'll grow to hate that cacophony when prosecutors play the clip in court. Check out the video for yourself below.

        But on the Autobahn, that **** is legal, so drivers have come to expect 250km/h rocketships to blast by them in the passing lane.

      What is WITH these self-incriminating videos? Bad enough you're doing the deed, hey why not capture it on video....and UPLOAD it to youtube for millions to view!

      That is probably the least wreckless 'wreckless' driving video I have ever seen. I don't see what the big deal is here. I pass people with such a difference in speed all the time. While I'm actually going the SPEED LIMIT. How is this any more dangerous than the people doing 45-50 on the highway???

      Big deal. That didn't look terribly hazardous or reckless to me, even if it was speeding. I'd give my left nut to drive my 427 Cobra, with open side pipes, through that tunnel. WAAAAAAHHH!!!

      The craziness of this video is overblown. Reminds me of my buddy who traded in his BMW - for a SUV. You just can't go fast anymore..outside of the track..

        DUH....that is the point. Want to drive like an idiot, then go to a track. The rest of us have a right to expect safe driving from other people. Please show me anywhere it is written you have a right to drive recklessly.

      I don't advocate what he did. It was stupid and unsafe. But I gotta admit, I always wanted to take a supercar in a long tunnel, roll the windows down and floor the gas pedal.

      Wonder what the other drivers were thinking at the time, esp. with how an exhaust like that could be heard all throughout the tunnel.

      The funnest thing to hear is when you pull into a parking garage with a nice note from your pipes and give it a half rev to hear that echoing rumble. It's sinister! heh - Especially with straight pipes!

      so sad, I really expected more. I do that regularly, in my 2006 Jetta TDI, to work in the morning just to keep up with the normal flow.
