A motorcyclist took the internet to post footage of him going up to 144 miles per hour. But the idea quickly turned into an expensive one after he decided to post the footage on YouTube. The motorcyclist in Williamson County, Texas, was spotted but a Facebook post said the constable made the decision, in the interest of Public Safety, not to pursue. But it turned out to be the right idea as the motorcyclist had plans to show the world about his speedy run.
The motorcyclist gave himself away after uploading a video of the speeding violation. The YouTube video was later found by the constable and he was able to see the speedometer marking up to 144 mph. Previous videos from the person showed the license plate of the motorcycle, setting everything up for authorities to take action.
The constable gathered all the information and sent a ticket for the speeding violation seen in the video. The motorcyclist is not the first to give himself away on YouTube and other video sites after breaking the rules. In the past, authorities have been able to use videos to identify people involved in incidents. Authorities did not reveal how much the speeding violation will cost him.
