Spain: Speeding Porsche driver takes child on 218 kph juvie-joyride, without seatbelt

Spain, Madrid
August 7, 2015 at 01:43 GMT +00:00 · Published

Perhaps confusing a simple commute with setting the landspeed record, a sports car was caught travelling at a massive 218 kilometers per hour (135.46mph) on a toll road outside Madrid, Friday, driving at almost double the speed limit. On stopping the vehicle, traffic police discovered that the driver had taken his 8-year-old child, who was not wearing a seat belt, along for the joyride.

The white Porsche Panamera, driven by a 31 year old Spaniard, was travelling along the R4 toll road on route to Toledo. The man was quickly arrested after a Pegasus helicopter belonging to the Spanish Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) spotted the speeding vehicle.

The man has since been charged with road safety crimes, and could face a fine or term of community service. He is also expected to have his licence suspended, potentially for up to four years.
