Yes he should be charged with speeding for sure and certain and not letting his injuries and the public snetiment in the main giving him a leave pass.The fact that he was doing nearly twice the legal limit on a public highway, therefore driving recklessly, and was fortunate that he didn't hit another vehicle, yet is not facing any charge for that? That doesn't make it public business? Swap Tiger Woods for some construction worker in the same scenario; would they have no charges brought against them?
I have probably driven more than 500 different makes/models/types of vehicle and whilst I may have been unfamiliar with the handling of the vehicle I have NEVER had an issue with speed. It's ALWAYS been obvious where the speedometer is, and whilst your average speedometer is not entirely accurate they ALWAYS over-read so if the needle says 45kph you can guarantee you won't be breaking the speed limit in a 45kph zone.Well not a complete accident. If he was unfamiliar with the vehicle he shouldn't have been driving close to the legal speed limit anyway. I guess over here it would be driving without due care and attention or even dangerous driving.
