A German pony minding his own business was caught on a speed camera at a supposed speed of 59kmh.

However, the sprightly little chap is unlikely to be making the Guinness Book of Records any time soon, nor is he likely to enjoy success in a racing career.

The camera was actually snapping the car behind the pony, which had been caught exceeding the 50kmh limit in the area.

The pony’s intervention saved the driver from a ticket, as his rump obscured the number plate at precisely the time the camera was snapping the number plate.

The City of Eppstein in Hessen released the quirky image, which was taken last month

As for the lucky driver, he or she will be able to keep their wallet firmly closed, and keep the 10 euros the fine otherwise would have cost.
