Cop caught at 256km/h

`A British traffic officer caught driving at 256km/h but cleared by a court of speeding and dangerous driving faces a legal move at the High Court in London to convict him.

The Attorney General will appeal against the acquittal of constable Mark Milton and seek a High Court order that the advanced police driver should be convicted over his high speed blast in the early hours of December 5, 2003. Mr Milton, a qualified advanced driver, was recorded by an onboard camera in his upgraded unmarked Vauxhall Vectra police car traveling at 91 mph (146km/h) in a 30 mph (48km/h) zone and hitting 159 mph (256km/h) on the M54 motorway. The legal limit in Britain is 70 mph (112km/h).’
