LONDON - A motorcyclist who posted a video on the Internet of him riding at speeds up to 208 kilometres per hour and doing dangerous stunts in Britain was jailed for 12 weeks Monday.
A clip posted on video-sharing website YouTube showed 28-year-old Sandor Ferenci performing a variety of motorcycle tricks, including wheelies and skids, on his Yamaha R6 bike as well as racing on the wrong side of the road near Oxford, central England, in June.
Prosecutors said a motorist who observed Ferenci's stunts took down his registration number and passed it to police, who traced him to his home.
When officers arrived to question him, at the time unaware of the Internet clip, Ferenci immediately asked: "Is this about the YouTube video?" To read the rest of the article: http://www.canada.com/topics/news/world/story.html?id=ef515a7c-fc16-4283-9251-dcb4fd7c351d
