A judge agreed that the defendant could not be the banana-eating speeder

Wikimedia/Thamizhpparithi Maari

A Swedish man told the judge that he was on a low-carb diet and could not possibly have been caught speeding while eating bananas.

A Swedish man facing a hefty fine for speeding recently got very lucky and avoided the charge by convincing a judge that he could not possibly be the culprit, because the speeder was eating a banana and he never did.

According to The Local, a Swedish man was photographed by a police camera driving 68 kilometers per hour in a 60 kilometer-per-hour zone. The owner of the car was ticketed $174 for speeding, but he protested that he was not the guilty party. He told a judge that the man in the photo was clearly eating a banana, but the car’s owner insisted that he was on a low-carb, high-fat diet and had not eaten bananas in more than two years.

He did not specify who the banana-eating speeder was, but said that his car had been up for sale at the time and several people took it out for test drives. Maybe one of the test drivers broke the speed limit while also enjoying a snack, he suggested.

The judge agreed to let the car’s owner out of the fine on the grounds that they couldn’t really tell who the banana-eating driver was, so it really might not have been the car’s owner at all.

The low-carb, high-fat diet is called LCHF in Sweden, and it has been very popular for several years.


2016 − Southeast & Central Asia

The village of Ban Pao in Isaan (northern Thailand) is my starting point and my base. I've been working with this community for the past few years micro-financing a mushroom farm. This year's project is a bakery.

When I travel, I rarely book anything in advance. I take whatever transportation is easily available: Planes and ferries for hopping between islands, and buses, vans, cars and ojeks (motorcycles) for going overland.

I won't manage to see all of Indonesia this year. To see a country of 17,000 islands, a 30-day visa with just one 30-day extension is not enough. I'll come back here again sometime. Indonesia is one of those places where I'm asking myself . How come no one ever told me about this amazing country?

Meanwhile, now that summer has come to the northern hemisphere, I'm starting to think about Mongolia. From there, I'll go to Tibet. That will round out my travels for this year . at least until October, when I'll start a new journey.

I'm still not tired of traveling. Why? Because travel is an endless source of education, inspiration, and opportunities to help others. I've created the blogs below to encourage you to leave home for a while, to embrace adventure, to discover new people and places, and to explore the amazing planet we live on.
