DeLorean Driver Gets The Best Speeding Ticket Ever

Normally getting a speeding ticket is a bad thing, but a Santa Clarita DeLorean owner is actually pretty excited about the ticket he got this week.

Spencer White was driving on the 14 Freeway with his mother, when they realized they were going 85 miles per hour. You can probably see where this is going.

“My mom, she’s looking at me and she just says, ‘Take it up to 88, let’s do it,” White said.

While they didn't break the space-time continuum, they did end up breaking something else - the speed limit. Of course, that was the exact moment White realized there was a cop car right behind him. Luckily, everyone saw the humor in the situation.

White described the officer as having a huge grin, "like he’s won the lottery.” He even let White snap a photo of the radar gun so there would be proof.

Turns out Doc Brown was right, and when a DeLorean hits 88 miles per hour you're gonna see some serious shit. While he thought the hilarity of the situation would get the officer to let him off with a warning, White wasn't so lucky. What he got instead was a $400 speeding ticket. Fortunately, White didn't seem too bothered, describing it as "the dream ticket."

Too bad his DeLorean didn't have a flux capacitor, otherwise he might have been able to escape.
