The newly wed and nearly dead... Not anymore!

I've lived in the Victoria, BC, area a few times. Aside from the days when the intersection of Douglas and Yates, known as "Pusser's Corner" back in the day, was alive with sailors in their "number two" rig, the city used to have a reputation for being extraordinarily quiet.

Things, so to speak, seem to have changed.
A naked couple have been arrested after allegedly having sex in a moving car.

Their highway hi-jinks startled motorists in [Victoria] British Columbia, Canada - who called police to expose the bizarre traffic violation.

A second nude woman was spotted, but appeared to have been dropped off at her own home before officers could swoop.

After hearing about the romp on the Trans Canada Highway, police in Victoria traced the car's owner through reports of his licence plate.

When they arrived at his home, they arrested a man and a woman in their twenties - but were told the second woman had been taken home already.

Victoria Police Constable Kris Rice said: "There were some reports that they seemed to be wanting attention from other drivers as they engaged in sexual acts.

"Both were determined to be in the nude."

The woman was taken to a hospital for psychiatric assessment, while the driver will likely only face such charges as driving without due care and attention, because police did not witness any sexual acts.

You might note that rather than take the story from the local Victoria newspaper, the link is to a British news site. Global coverage. Better than the Olympics.
