UPI News Service, 01/18/2013 

A French judge has acquitted a man allegedly photographed speeding 94 times, after finding prosecutors could not prove the man was driving at the time.

Prosecutors said the 40-year-old Rouen man, whose name was not released, was allegedly caught by speed cameras driving 112 mph on 43 mph roads and one of the cameras captured the car traveling 155 mph, The Local.fr reported Friday.

President of Versaille Criminal Court Francoise Dufour threw out the charge of endangering people's lives because the 94 speed camera photos from 2011 and 2012 failed to show the man's face.

Lawyer Adrien Weil applauded the decision.

"Legally this decision is absolutely correct because there are no photographs and no witness testimonies to prove my client was driving the vehicle," Weil said.

"The car was used for both company and private use and this is the problem with speed cameras," he said. "Notice of the violation is sent out to the owner of a vehicle a little like a bottle in the sea and then they must find out who committed the offense."
