Court: Diarrhea no excuse for speeding

Let’s see, risk a fatal car accident…or poop in your pants?

A court in Trelleborg, Sweden, has ruled that a woman’s diarrhea was not a sufficient reason for her to break the posted speed limit while driving.

The district court rejected the 49-year-old woman’s argument that she was forced to drive 53 mph in a 43 mph zone because of her digestive issues, Swedish news agency TT reported Thursday.

The court said the speed limit can only be broken in cases of emergency, which it defined as a danger to someone’s life or to prevent a serious crime.

The woman was ordered to pay her speeding ticket.
