Speeding Lamborghini Gallardo owner caught after posting YouTube clip

Posting videos of speeding vehicles on YouTube may seem fun, and can even be profitable in some instances, but it comes with a whole host of risks. First and foremost, there’s the ever present danger that if said car’s license plate is shown in a video, then the police can easily track the owner and issue them with a host of driving violations.

Well, that’s exactly what recently happened to a 38-year-old, Japanese CEO named Mikami Tadao. He was recently captured after the following video depicted him speeding through a Japanese tunnel, at what’s suspected to be 97 mph or almost 60 mph faster than the legal speed limit.

Although the video certainly doesn’t seem to capture the offending Lamborghini Gallardo traveling at those speeds, we’ll take Asahi’s word for it. Nevertheless, Tadao was clearly speeding through the tunnel based on how many car’s the Italian supercar passes, and on one hand we can understand the attraction of pinning the throttle to capture the glorious V-10 cacophony of the car, but on the other hand, posting the video on YouTube obviously pushed it a bit too far.

The offense is believed to have occurred January 2, 2010 and the man was captured on March 9 this year, and we believe, he’s still behind bars with an array of traffic offenses expected to be passed down on him when, and if, the case ever makes it to court.

Check out the video, and be sure to keep in mind that if you ever plan to break the speed limit and film it (which, of course, we don’t condone), please don’t post it online!

They have to think carefully before they post this kind of video and analyze if there is a good content of this video for others.

I think what he’s boasting about was ridiculous. Unlucky, he ends up in jail. He even got to share that hazardous, yet thrilling experience.

He had better studied to analyze the video before posting it. He is just so proud of himself to publish his own crime.

Posting videos is risky most especially if you have that kind of content.

He’s dumb to post that video. Well, if he’s not, he won’t post any video regarding driving his car on high-speed.

Was it the first time that a person is arrested due to his postings on Youtube Account?

Unfortunately, he did it just to have some fame. It’s a fame that will lead into breakthrough driving crime resolution.

If he only knew what’s about to happen on porting that clip, he might never do that uploads.

He’s pathetic that he simply put himself into jail?

Better luck next time before you post this video. You must be careful if you have other bad reactions of this video.

He terribly uses that video to get himself arrested. Maybe he has regrets by now, and next time he will not upload any video that can ruin his credibility as a super car owner.

I admit that it’s fun having those speeds in real highway, and it feels like an adventure, but having it recorded and watch by you and your family is a great idea. In this video clip, we can say that he actually boasts his driving skills at high speeds, unfortunately, the certified hit video reached police stations. Ha ha.

So next time, be careful on what you are posting, most especially if you are the one who’s caught in the act.
