It was a quiet afternoon in Bocholt in western Germany when a pigeon broke the calm and the speed limit, flying down a residential street at 45km/h (28mph) in a 30km/h zone.
A mobile speed camera flashed as soon as the pigeon flew past.
Authorities in the town, a short distance from the Dutch border, published the picture last week, and it has since gone viral.
Under normal circumstances the penalty for speeding would be €25 (£21;$28).
And you don’t want to know what’s going to happen to his insurance.
