"Depending on where you live in the world you can get caught speeding in a number of different ways. The two most common are in a speed trap which uses a camera, or by a police officer monitoring a highway with a speed gun.

"Sahas Katta got pulled over by the police for speeding. He was apparently doing 40 in a 25mph zone. At the time he was too shocked to even question the speed, so he just accepted the ticket and carried on driving. But Sahas had a way of proving he wasn't speeding that he hadn't realized.
