Excuse 借口

A New Zealand man caught driving at more than twice the legal speed limit claimed he needed to step on the gas in order to blow-dry his car. Roger Daniel, 37, offered the novel excuse after he was nabbed traveling at over 120 kilometers per hour in a 50 kph zone in the northern town of Whangarei, the DominionPost newspaper reported. "I have a bad back and just thought I would do that instead of having to chamois(麂皮,羚羊皮) it dry," he told police. The explanation failed to impress: Daniel was fined $191 and had his licence suspended for six months.
 
一个新西兰男人以超过法定速度的两倍开车而被拘,他的理由是需要加大油门好让风吹干他的汽车。37岁的罗杰·丹尼尔以每小时120公里的速度在限速50公里的新西兰北部城镇璜加雷一带开车被逮住后给出了这么一个新奇的理由,《主权邮报》报道。“汽车后部湿了,我想用这种方法来代替擦干它,”他对警方说道。而这一解释并没有给警方留下好印象,他被罚款191美元,吊扣行驶执照6个月。
