(Newser) – What's Italian for "leadfoot"? A Milanese man going 168mph was busted on four separate highway cameras in less than hour, ANSA reports. He was driving for his employer, whose lawyers argue that he should be responsible for just one infraction. They said they also plan to cite a court ruling that says signs identifying cameras must be a certain distance from a speed trap, adding: “Naturally, we do not condone such driving at all.”
