An Italian scooter rider fleeing from police hit the throttle and racked up a record penalty of 144 points off his 20-point driving licence in a few minutes of reckless riding.
After the 15-minute chase, his list of offences had grown: not stopping when police ordered, running a red light, riding the wrong way down city-centre streets, riding on pedestrian footpaths and speeding.
He was also found to be riding without rear-view mirrors, insurance or lights, and with a licence plate incorrectly attached to his vehicle.
I can’t believe that he broke as many laws as he did and not injure anyone. That is a remarkable task.Permalink
