1000 MPH Car? Will You Get a Ticket?

The College of Engineering team at Swansea University is working on a 1,000 MPH car. The project name is called BLOODHOUND SSC (Supersonic car).

Imagine the aerodynamics needed to keep that car stable at 1,000 MPH (Mach 1.3), which is faster than the speed of sound. Also imagine the engineering that has to go into the tires, suspensions and other parts of the car just to keep it safe and stable for the driver.

In 2015, BLOODHOUND SSC will make its speed test at 800 MPH and then the 1,000 MPH test run will happen in 2016. The test site will be in Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.

If successful, the question remains, will you get a ticket for driving this car? Will the cops even be able to catch you?
