Speeding: stopped, he ends up in a potato field

A speeding driver ended his race in a potato field, in front of the police…

Not a day goes by without the regional press gratifying us with champions of the road, between delirious speeding, driving without a license and without insurance and other dangerous and sometimes quite absurd behavior. To tell the truth, when we know that more than 800,000 people drive without their car being covered and that many motorists take to the road without even having the right to do so, there is nothing very surprising. Although this is obviously very alarming all the same. And the story that we are going to tell you is not very far from all that we are telling you here. We explain everything to you, and it’s gratin!

A great speeding

The case takes place on Tuesday, August 22, on the RD 929 near Yerville. The gendarmes carry out speed checks when they see a car traveling at 150 km/h instead of the regulatory 80 km/h. Except that the driver refuses to stop and flees. He then loses control of his car and ends up in a potato field and tries to flee on foot. Except that the gendarmes of the surveillance and intervention squad of the Yvetot gendarmerie and the motorized brigade of Écalles-Alix were quick to find the fugitive. And he should have a hard time.

More permits

Indeed, the police discover that the driver fled to his employer, and that his driving license was withdrawn two years ago for similar facts. He was therefore taken into custody and presented in cimmediate appearance before the Rouen court. He was eventually sentenced to twelve months in prison, four of which were suspended. The man is also required to undergo treatment for his alcohol level and will have to retake his driving license.
