The Italian Job III – In Poland

KRAKOW TOURS – This Wednesday Slask police released jaw-dropping footage of the driver of a Mini Cooper who racked up a record 205 penalty points on his licence and committed 35 traffic offences in a mere fifteen minutes two weeks ago on the streets of Dabrowa Gornicza, and all with his three-year-old daughter unsecured on the rear seat.

The video taken by the chasing police car show the mini as it slaloms through traffic in the city centre at speeds of up to 140km/h. The man also drove straight through a crossroads on a red light, swerved across grass verges forcing a pedestrian to jump for his life and was only stopped after a collision with a police vehicle.

Police breathalysed the man, and were surprised to find he was sober. He explained that he had panicked and fled only because he didn’t have his documents on him. After detailed examination of the video, police not only awarded him the record number of points on his license but also hit him with an immediate three year driving ban, and are considering a charge of endangering the life of a passenger with regard to his daughter. The penalty for that could be as much as five years in prison.

The man has also been sacked from his job as an ambulance driver.
