He's been (gently) penalised because the motoring public were p****d that he got off initially. Frankly, it's all overblown - you can do greater speeds on parts of the Autobahn in Germany and, indeed, in some mid-west states of the US there's no limit at all on out of town roads. The issue is to do with inappropriate driving and I guess 60+ in a 30 limit is a tad too high. I'd rather they eased up on the rest of us mortals than use this guy as an albeit deserving scapegoat.

My other cars are less unusual!
