Caught in the act on social media

LanguedocLiving, Sep 20

Two drivers and a passenger were filmed doing 200 km/h, weaving in and out of traffic, on the departmental road 821 between Lourdes and Argelès-Gazost, Hautes-Pyrénées.

The video was posted on social media, and the police were alerted. The passenger who took the video and posted it was identified quickly, and the police were able to arrest the three young men.

One the drivers has a youngster’s probationary driving licence, and the other driver had a licence which had been taken away for a previous conviction of driving and taking drugs.

Needless to say, the three were arrested, their licences were removed, and the two cars were impounded. They await a date in court.
