An Australian Lamborghini driver gave police the most 2020 reason for being caught at nearly twice the speed limit on a Sydney motorway: he needed to get to a coronavirus testing station.
The 35-year-old man was detected travelling up to 160km/h in a 90km/h zone on Sydney's M4 on Monday.
Unsurprisingly, the driver was fined and has his licence suspended.
Australian police urged anyone who suspected that they had a case fo Covid-19 to call their local medical centre first.
"Drivers shouldn't break the road rules under any circumstances," Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said.
"If you think you may have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to seek help from a doctor or hospital, call ahead of time to book an appointment.
According to police, the man had since been tested for the virus, and now is in mandatory self-isolation.
It isn't known whether he tested positive or not.
