A top BMW boss has been reportedly jailed for six weeks for lying to police after being clocked at 101 MPH in a MINI. Reported by Dailymail.co.uk.
>Yesterday he was jailed for perjury after claiming falsely that his 19-year-old son had been driving the car at more than twice the legal 50mph speed limit.
>He is the latest in a growing number of motorists who try to illegally “swap points” to keep their licences clean or escape a ban.
>Mr Moser, from Oxford, was caught shortly after 7am on May 4 by a speed-camera van on Oxford’s Eastern by-pass. The legal limit on the road is 50 mph.
>He was driving a BMW-owned Mini – the cult car made by the British-based but German owned firm whose finances he controlled, Banbury Magistrates’ court was told.
>Despite photographic evidence to the contrary, Moser, a German national, claimed his son Maximilian was driving at the time of the offence.
