NYPD used traffic cameras to identify the driver. They arrested him this morning according to the morning news.

What are the statue of limitations in New York for traffic violations? one year I think; driver should have waited before revealing his broken record.

I still find the record of the transcontinental record quite interesting; New York to L.A in 31 Hours 6 min broken in 2006 by Alex Roy in a E39 M5. They waited a year or two before publishing anything pertaining to the record to run out the statute of limitations in every state.

I don't get it ?

Why go 3 or 4 times the legal speed limit but stop for the red lights ??

Could have saved at least 2 to 3 minutes (or 10% of total time)

Ha Ha !!
