He was drying off his freshly washed car. That's what a Canadian man told the Mounties when they stopped him doing 180kmh south on Highway 22 south of Black Diamond, Alberta in Western Canada. 

The driver, a 67-year-old who lives in the area, has since appeared in court.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the judge fined the man $800 and suspended him from driving for 45 days.
