Skateboarder busted for speeding at 68 mph
 
A professional skateboarder is potentially facing jail time after uploading a video that purports to show him skating at an astounding 68 mph through the middle of traffic.

South African skater Decio Lourenco faces the charges after Cape Town city officials say his high-speed skating actually triggered a speed camera. The speed limit in the town Lourenco was skating through is reportedly 37 mph.

ďAll that was needed was for one of those motorists to panic and swerve into the oncoming traffic and you have a large number of deaths, as we have already had on that road, safety spokesman Jean-Pierre Smith, told the New York Daily News. "If we don't take action against him, every other aspirant skateboarder will try it and one of them will come to a sticky end."

I think the trailing vehicle was tracking his speed. He exceeded a "speed detector's" limit that brought it to the attention of authorities.

You can see the flash of the speed cam at 1:05 mark.

With speed trap cameras that's how.

Good eye, that's pretty ballsy.

And he knew he tripped it by raising his arms in defiance. Pretty funny.
