Ranulph Fiennes Escapes Speeding Fine, Thanks to Name Mix-Up


Ranulph Fiennes
Though so, the adventurer still faces repercussions from another car incident and is scheduled to appear in court in Stockport, England later this year.


Famed adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes has escaped a car speeding fine - after officials accidentally wrote the name of his distant cousin, actor Ralph Fiennes, on documents. The explorer was allegedly caught by a speed camera traveling at 50 miles per hour on a 40 miles per hour road in Cheshire, England.

But the case has now been dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service after officials sent a letter bearing the name of Schindler's "List" star Ralph to the wrong address. When Fiennes failed to react to the notice, another notification was sent to him but the letter was misspelled - it was written to Ranulph Feinnes.

And after hiring top lawyer Nick Freeman, Fiennes has escaped any further action. But he still faces repercussions from another car incident - he has been charged with driving without due care and attention in relation to a car crash in England in March .

The driver of the other car involved in the smash was treated for collapsed lungs, broken ribs and a broken leg, while a five-year-old boy also suffered minor head injuries. On Monday, June 28, Fiennes was officially charged over the incident. He is scheduled to appear in court in Stockport, England later this year.
