The heavenly way this motorist escaped ticket

A lucky driver has missed out on a speeding ticket after he was saved by a force from above.

News.com.au reported a motorist in Germany was clocked at 24km/h above the speed limit, but at the exact moment the speed camera took a photo, his face was obscured by a passing pigeon.

The driver was spared the 105 euro ($170) fine by local police because the pigeon blocked the man’s face and they could not accurately identify who the driver was.

Local police took to social media to warn the driver to take the strange incident as a sign from above to slow down in the future.
