Oops, this jaunt was pretty expensive!
Because he Sped into a motorway construction site at 244 kilometers per hour a 53-year-old PS Rambo has to pay a fine of 12,000 euros (120 daily rates). He also has to surrender his driver’s license for ten months.
This has now been decided by the Frankfurt District Court (file number: 3510 Js 256549/20). Legally, the brutal drive was considered a prohibited vehicle race and thus a criminal offense. The verdict is not yet legally binding.
The defendant was traveling on the A3 between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden last November when he passed the construction site near Hattersheim (Hessen).
But instead of slowing down to the permitted 80 km / h, he just thundered on with his Mercedes AMG. Time of the crime: 10.19 a.m. – the autobahn is definitely no longer empty.
The Rambo driver only braked when a speed camera had photographed him. He was identified through the picture and subjected to criminal proceedings.
In court, he admitted that he was behind the wheel. However, he gave no further reasons for its high speed.
According to the judgment, only the abstract endangerment of other drivers within the confusing construction site with curves and narrowing was the reason for the conviction. It was said that no second car had to take part in a prohibited vehicle race.
The defense attorney had requested an acquittal for legal reasons, the public prosecutor a fine.
