This car must have an extra gear. An Italian woman driving a Ford Focus received a ticket for going hundreds of miles an hour over the speed limit.A speed camera malfunctioned and clocked her speed at 437 mph. FYI… the Ford Focus available in Europe can only reach a top speed of 155 mph.

The local police failed to double-check the camera’s findings before mailing the woman a ticket, which was just under $1,000.  A transportation spokesman said police should have checked the details before sending the driver a ticket and joked that “even with a missile” the car could not possibly reach speeds that high.

A  Utah animal shelter said a cat that went missing 10 years ago was reunited with her owner after being brought in as a stray.

The Animal Shelter said a stray cat was recently brought into the shelter by a person who said they had been feeding the stray feline, but they were preparing to move and were concerned about leaving the cat without a consistent source of food.

The shelter scanned the cat for a microchip and found the contact information for a man who identified the cat as Mocha, his daughter's cat. The man said Mocha had gone missing from the family's home 10 years earlier, when his daughter was a teenager.

The man's daughter, now an adult, came into the shelter and was reunited with her long-lost pet.

The shelter said the story should serve as a reminder of how important it is to bring stray animals in to be scanned for microchips.
