Most Swedes Rat on Speeding Friends

Asked by the police "who borrowed your car, and was caught driving too fast by the speed camera" - six out of ten Swedes will in fact expose the culprit.

The remainder - four out of ten - will say that they do not remember, or that they do not want to say who they lent their car to. And legally, they are perfectly entitled to refuse.

Without the help of the car's owner, many would escape the fine, since a picture taken by the speed camera is often not enough to identify the speeding driver, Anders Drougge, head of the police stationary camera surveillance tells the tabloid Metro.

Every year, thousands of speeding drivers are fined, after the owner of the car has identified them.
