    Hearse driver is fined for speeding during funeral

    DUBLIN, Ireland - An Irish hearse driver has been fined for speeding -- while leading a funeral cortege.

    Police ordered undertaker John Carr to pay an $102 fine and gave him two penalty points for driving at 69 kilometers per hours (43 mph) in a 50 km/hr zone.

    Several other vehicles in the cortege -- on its way to a funeral in County Donegal, northwest Ireland -- were also fined and their drivers threatened with prosecution if they did not pay.

    Hundreds of people were caught in the same area during a police crackdown last month, including parents taking their children to school.

    “I’ve never heard of a hearse being done for speeding before. I supposed I’ll probably have to pay the fine,” The Irish Times newspaper quoted Carr as saying. “I’m not too worried about the points because I intend not to incur any more.”

    That's terrible! I can't believe a cop would pull over a hearse that was leading a funeral procession and then have the audacity to write him a ticket on the spot. What a dickhead!
    I am a dipshit!!!

    What's the difference? The dead guy has all kinds of time, waiting for a ticket won't matter.
