It seems Jezza and Hamster had an argument with the French police over their driving privileges. While filming for their newest Top Gear DVD, they were travelling on a French highway at just over 140 km/h (the regular speed limit would be 130km/h) but failed to notice a section of the road was limited to 90km/h.

The French rozzers took their licenses and wallet contents on the spot and suspended the pair from driving in France for 3 months. Oops.

Love the end bit: "Top tip: if you are going to break the speed limit, make sure you're not in France."
