Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond have been banned driving in France for speeding. The reason? They were filming Top Gear's latest Christmas DVD called "The Perfect Road Trip".
Clarkson and Hammond were allegedly caught doing over 140 km/h (87 mph) in a 90 km/h (56 mph) area. Since the two were more than 50 km/h (31 mph) over the legal speed limit, they received an instant driving ban in France.
“If you are going to break the speed limit, make sure you are not in France. You would be advised to pay attention to what happened next.
