Speeding can be expensive

Make sure to read the last paragraph.


SALEM, Ore. - A young man who was pulled over after police clocked him speeding down Interstate 5 at 118 mph told the sheriff's office he was making a video to post on YouTube.

Stanislav Bakanov, 30, of Keizer, admitted to police that he was going between 90 and 100 mph in his BMW but the sheriff's office said he was going much faster than that. They also said the conditions on the road were dangerous at that speed because strong wind gusts had sent tree branches onto the highway.

When a sheriff's deputy pulled over Bakanov he said the man was still filming as he walked up to his door and even went so far as to play back what he had recorded up to that point. The sheriff's office said the video contained footage of the speedometer with the needle pegged and then showed the police stop. The driver had fashioned a mount on the windshield to hold the camera while he drove.

Police seized the camera for evidence, arrested Bakanov and booked him at the Marion County Jail. Bakanov was cited for reckless driving, was fined over $1,100 and his vehicle was impounded. Police said his driving record showed that this was his third speeding incident in the past year.

Bakanov's arrest came just a few hours after police clocked a motorcyclist going 107 mph on I-5. In that case, the man was cited and released but he was fined over $1,400.

Darwin will take care of those fools eventually. I just hope I don't get tied up with them when he does.

Agreed. but it wasnt the speeding, it was the crash from speeding that got him.


Sorry just trying to put a humorous spin on it.

Yeah you're right there Camo, not speeding but the sudden stop against a greater mass!
