Officer, I was speeding, but 712 mph? News-Journal wire services

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- A driver accused of going 712 mph in a 56 zone says there must be some mistake -- that's nearly the speed of sound.

While he doesn't claim to be completely innocent, Lim Ang Hing says his speedometer on his sedan goes only up to 161, The Star newspaper reported Tuesday.

In February, a taxi driver received a speeding ticket for allegedly driving at 696 mph.

Police said the problem is probably a technical glitch.
