A Scottish expatriate living in Spain was recently banned from driving there after being caught speeding at 169mph, the fastest speed ever recorded on a Granada motorway.
We think this is an appropriate time to remind expats everywhere our first rule of expatriatism: Don’t be a bonehead. You aren’t Jason Bourne. Understandably, there’s a sense of freedom you can get from being a foreigner in another country that’s exhilarating and carefree. But remember that you’re representing people from your home country too.
And besides, the man was fined a staggering £3,000 for the offense, on top of now needing to hire a driver.
