The end of the journey took place more than 125 miles from his destination, in Belgium, when the car ran out of fuel and crashed into a dam.

Frank Lecerf, a French 36 years old driver from the town of Point-de-Metz, Amiens, won’t forget the scare he took last Sunday when the car he was driving got jammed at a speed of 200km/h during a normal trip to the supermarket.

Unable to stop his car, a Renault Laguna – adapted for drivers with physical disabilities – Lecerf had no choice but to continue driving on the highway he was on, while he tried to come up with a solution for the problem.

The end of the journey eventually happened already in Belgium, more than 125 miles beyond its original destination, when Lecerf’s car eventually ran out of gas abd hit a dam in Alveringem.

When approached by the authorities to tell about what happened, Lecerf said that in a first moment, the speed of his car got stuck at 95km/h, and that when he tried to slow down the speed continued to increase until it stabilized at 200km/h, giving no other choice to the French driver but to continue driving until the situation was resolved.

The French police was involved in the situation because Lecerf was able to make a call from inside the car, asking for help.

Once contacted, the French police sent a dozen cars to escort Lecerf, with the aim of establishing a security perimeter around the vehicle alerting other drivers of the dangerous situation.

In addition to this safety measure he immediately established contact with the brand technicians, who quickly admitted that the only solution to the problem was to wait for the gas to run out.

After all this, Frank Lecerf already admitted he will sue the Renault brand, due to the risky situation he was exposed to.

Italian Carabinieri fine driver for going over 1000Km/h

Italian driver was caught driving at over 1000Km/h. He got a 165€ fine and points on his licence for exceding the speed limit in the town of Orio, Italy.

This guy was driving a supersonic Fiat Doblo and topped 1,230km/h as the Carabineri ( that’s what they call policemen in Italy ) confirmed on their paperwork.

Getting a 165€ ticket for driving at 1230km/h when the speed limit is 90km/h can hardly be considered a tough punishment, right?

The document was signed off by two police officials before being sent onto the driver of the Fiat van so there is very little margin for a mistake and we have to assume this was a really pimped up Fiat Doblo.

Insane woman driver plays with police chasing her

A woman drives a Scion onto a grassy area off the southbound 241 toll road, drove in circles, drove in the wrong directions, and even got out of the car to gesture at officers following her.

During the high speed pursuit she even stops the car and steps out to gesture at the cops.
She ended up arrested but nothing kept her from yelling and shouting through authorities’ vehicle window.
