A MAN caught driving at 217km/h has had his license confiscated and is banned from driving for two years.
The events took place on December 5, 2018, when at around 1pm, he was caught driving his mother’s car on the A-63 motorway heading towards Oviedo, at 217km/h when the speed limit was 120km/h.
The Guardia Civil handling the speed camera alerted another patrol so they would stop the vehicle. When he saw their car, he quickly slowed down and stopped at the side of the road.
However, when the car with the speed camera arrived, he sped away at full speed. The officers chased him, but they considered it was too dangerous to continue the high speed chase and he was located later.
He been given a fine of €2,160 and can appeal the sentence.
He will be able to apply for a driving license once 12 months has passed if he previously completes a course and passes obligatory tests.
