When Spencer White’s DeLorean hit 88 mph on Highway 14, he didn’t go “Back to the Future.” Instead, he got a ticket.

When Dr. Emmett Brown’s DeLorean time machine would hit 88 mph in the 1985 movie, “Back to The Future,” the flux capacitor would be activated. The passenger inside would then travel through time.

That’s not what happened to White.

White describes hitting 88 mph for a couple of seconds before seeing a California Highway Patrol officer flashing his lights behind him.
