Photo-Radar "Monkey" Was Cited at Least 90 Times in Last Year

Yesterday we reported that a man wearing a monkey mask to evade speed cameras was ticketed 37 times for speeding.

Turns out that's just how many tickets police handed Dave Vontesmar. The number of tickets he actually earned is epic.

Department of Public Safety officials say he has actually racked up more than 90 citations in the past year.

Let's put that into perspective: To get 90 speeding tickets a year, this guy had to get a ticket roughly every four days for an entire year.


Is that a crime, or a world record?
