A father in Australia has the most ridiculous excuse for beating a traffic light, claiming he was in a rush to go buy Nando’s for his kids.

The man was stopped by officers of the West Australian Police Traffic department, who booked the man.

While filling his booking form, the man defended himself by saying: “I’m in a rush to get the kids Nando’s.”

The West Australian Police Traffic department shared the man’s ticket on their Twitter account.

He might have gotten his Nando’s in time, but he also got a $300 (AUD) fine and received six driving licence penalty points.
