Low-flying duck breaks Swiss town speed limit

Police in Switzerland are wondering who to fine for speeding after cameras showed the perpetrator that crushed the country’s speed limit was no driver, but a low-flying duck in a hurry.

Authorities in the western Swiss town of Köniz, two miles outside the city of Bern, posted a screenshot of the bird soaring in the middle of the street, around the same time that roadside sensors tracked a violation of the speed limit.

The animal was moving well above the region’s permitted top speed, flapping its wings at 32 miles per hour in a zone with an 18 mph limit. Even subtracting the 5 kmph (3 mph) margin of error, the bird is still in violation of the town’s road rules but will likely escape punishment.

Did the pedestrians have to duck ? 

If the duck gets fined, where will the courts send the bill ?

I saw it approaching the speed limit sign, and just assumed it would Drake at the last minute. 

But it didn't. A clear example of misconduckt !

If they didn't get its number plate it will escape a penalty, Ferrari Ducks fly faster than 32 mph .
