Fans of Back To The Future know that 88mph is a significant speed.  However it is considered speeding in Essex County, northeast of London, England. Nigel Mills bought his DeLorean car at an auction in 2004 and while he says it's a little rattly, he was driving on the highway last Sunday, when a police officer caught him going 89mph.  As things a little different across the pond, the officer who cited Mills was using a closed circuit TV camera and sent him his tickets and fine in the mail.  When Mills received the letter he contested the 89mph speed as "something was supposed to happen at 88mph".  Luckily for Mills, the ticket was dropped as the police officer who cited him was away ion special duty and unable to attend court.
