In a bizarre excuse, a speeding motorist caught by police in Britain told them that “love made him do it.”  

According to the Thames Valley Police's Facebook page, the incredibly romantic man said "love made him break the law.”

The man was driving at 102mph and was forced to stop by the police.

The police also wrote on Facebook that motorists on Easter Sunday were “egg-cellent” except for the lover who had been caught racing along the M40 to “see his girlfriend.”

Referring to the lovestruck motorist, the Thames Valley Police further wrote, “Rock legend Meatloaf: 'I would do anything thing for love, but I just won't do that!' (Speeding?). Reported straight to Court.

“Remember #ArriveAlive and stick to the limits. #ItsNotWorthTheRisk,” the police department said.

Since shared, the social media post has taken the internet by storm. Commenting on the incident, one user jokingly said, “You Can't Hurry Love by Phil Collins comes to mind, obviously won't be going anywhere speedy....”

“He won't do that in a hurry... Love Love don't come easy,” added another.

Meanwhile, the authorities informed that other drivers were stopped for speeding at 91mph, 90mph and 89mph. Two more drivers were also stopped for careless driving after overtaking at great speed with one motorist found to be “not in proper control of his vehicle.”
