A state trooper pulled over a vehicle on 93 south in Dorchester Monday morning after noticing the driver was talking on his cellphone.
As the trooper approached the vehicle he noted that the driver also had numerous books and a notebook on the passenger side seat.
The driver, 35 year old John Bitniky was cited for distracted driving, but has reached out to us to tell us his side of the story.
“I was real close,” he said. “I mean I’ve been working on this since Vermont.” We asked what in the hell he was talking about he said, “I almost had it then I got pulled over, I would have changed the world you know?”
Then he gave us the overview. On a ride from Burlington Vermont to Braintree, Bitniky decided he could shave some boredom off his trip if he tried solving a problem the world faced. At fifteen minutes in, he pulled out a notepad and pen and started reading several books about modern medicine all while taking notes, When he got to New Hampshire he was making some good progress and started talking to the CDC as he crossed into Massachusetts.
Then as he was working feverishly he got pulled over. He said, “I was actually only one or two more miles away from a cure for AIDS.”
At first we were somewhat skeptical, and asked what about all your notes? Can’t you just go back and finish it? Bitniky claims the only way he’d be able to make such progress would be to repeat the trip.
We did a little research on Bitniky ourselves and confronted him with his driving record. Every single offense he said could be explained.
Driving under the influence, Bitniky claims he was working on a safer way to transport alcohol.
Speeding over 65, Bitniky says this was a very scientific experiment in which he was attempting to go back in time to November 5th 1955 to save his friend Doc Brown, And he needed to hit 88MPH to do so.
