Lawyers are worth the investment when they are working for you, in Belgium a guy was caught going 156 mph, but his lawyer got him off scott free

On 8 November 2015, a Belgian at Pommeroeul flashed when he sped on his Kawasaki.

His lawyer figured out the loophole, don't show up for court. The man would then be accused in absentia, but by the lawyer appealing at the last moment against the conviction, the next court date for the appeal would take place more than a year after the bust.

However, the Belgian law makers determined that a speeding offense will expire after one year.

When examining the appeal, the judge first looked at the calendar and found that the date of that day and the bust were more than 365 days apart. In other words, past the statute of limitations.
