Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond won't be driving to France anytime soon as they have had their French driving privileges revoked for speeding.

According to Clarkson, he and Hammond were approaching a toll booth when they were busted for speeding in a 90 km/h (55 mph) zone.  Clarkson's Aston Martin Vanquish was clocked at 141 km/h (87 mph), while Hammond's Porsche 911 GT3 was tagged at 143 km/h (88 mph).

Unfortunately for the presenters, the on-the-spot fine left them "penniless" and their driving licenses were taken away.  After being rescued by the film crew, Clarkson and Hammond were informed they weren't allowed to drive in France for three months.
