Speeding fine? Just switch the road sign

This is an epoch-making way to avoid payment when given a speeding fine.

A British man who got snapped by a speed camera just switched the 30 miles per hour limit sign to 40 miles per hour…
Is it so easy to remove the sign from a post and attached to another post?
Of course, he will be sent to a jail.

However,,, I wonder why car manufacturers sell the car which can run more faster than speed limit. In case of Japan, the fastest accepted speed is 100km/hour. But my car has the speed meter which can show up to 200km/hour and surely the car can run at 200km/hour. (I dared not try that, though…)
It is quite funny that the government accepts to sell cars which can run faster than speed limit and the police try to catch the citizens who drive faster. If the government asked manufacturers not to sell such cars, the police could find more criminals…
Cigarette is the same. If cigarette is bad for health, why does the government accept makes to sell them?

As there is a car, I step on the gas…

Speeding fine? Just switch the road sign?|?Oddly Enough?|?Reuters.co.uk
LONDON (Reuters) - Motorist John Hopwood concocted a novel scheme to avoid payment when he was given a speeding fine -- simply switch the road signs.
Hopwood, 44, had been snapped by a speed camera breaking the 30 miles per hour limit.
So he went to a 40 mph area, removed a red "40" warning sign, drove back to the 30 mph area, attached it to a lamp post and took a photo as "proof" that his offence of driving at 48 mph had not been so bad.
However, suspicion soon arose when other drivers started querying the sign.
"This was a stupid act, bound to fail," Judge Anthony Ensor at Manchester Crown Court was quoted by media as telling Hopwood, who admitted trying to pervert justice.
He was ordered on Tuesday to serve an intermittent custodial sentence of 28 weeks which requires him to spend his weekends behind bars and told to pay 2,763 pounds in legal costs.
