Speeding police officer

Ticket-dodging police warned by superiors

A police officer who tried to escape punishment for speeding on the E4 highway has been issued a warning by the Sweden's National Police Board, news agency TT reports.

After being stopped for exceeding the speed limit while off duty last autumn, the police man flashed his badge and asked the police not to report him.

The man was driving at 128 kilometres per hour on a stretch of highway with a limit of 100.
