Timothy Hill, 67, was sentenced to eight months in prison after he was caught flipping off police and using an illegal laser speed jammer.
The laws in the UK seem a whole lot more structured than the ones here in the United States. Does anyone use speed detectors anymore in this country?
This man messed up when he lied about using a speech detector and then throwing it in the river.

While investigating him for the infraction, the 67-year-old was spotted behind the wheel of his Range Rover while giving the middle finger to mobile traffic cameras on three separate occasions, SWNS reports.
“If you want to attract our attention, repeatedly gesturing at police camera vans with your middle finger while you’re driving a distinctive car fitted with a laser jammer is an excellent way to do it,” the head of traffic enforcement for North Yorkshire said after the sentencing.
Hill initially denied the accusations against him, but later fessed up after admitting he’d thrown the device into a river in an attempt to avoid prosecution. He pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, but wasn’t charged with speeding since the jammer prevented police from determining how fast he was driving.
He was speeding so he has no respect for public safety. That also shows that he has no respect for the law. He flipped off the camera and lied to police so he obviously doesn’t feel the need to display any common courtesy to other people. Put all that together and he is clearly qualified for a position in Governor Moonbeams cabinet. He should hop on a plane to California where he can do anything he wants.
That’s the U.K. Their version of free-speech is different. But, the sentence wasn’t for flipping the bird, but rather the laser jammer. Flipping the bird (three times) merely alerted their attention to him.
