The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, in one of the speed inspection devices established in coordination with the Provincial Traffic Headquarters of Murcia, aimed at the prevention of traffic accidents, has identified the driver of a sports car, while driving on the conventional road RM (Puerto de la Cadena-San Javier), in the municipality of Torre Pacheco, exceeding the maximum speed allowed for the road by more than 80 km/h, for which he was intercepted and investigated as the alleged perpetrator of an offence against road safety.
The incident occurred when civil guards from the Cartagena Traffic Detachment, who were carrying out a static speed control at kilometre 20.100 of the RM-19 (Puerto de la Cadena – San Javier), in the municipality of Torre Pacheco, detected the circulation of a high-end car, at 194 km/h in a section limited to 100 km/h, thereby exceeding the maximum speed allowed by 94 km/h.
The agents stopped the vehicle and identified its driver, a 46-year-old man, of Polish nationality and resident of El Pilar de la Horadada (Alicante) who was travelling towards the coast of the Mar Menor, according to sources from the Benemérita in a statement.
The Guardia Civil informed him of the criminal offence, for which they would be instructed proceedings as the alleged perpetrator of a crime against road safety for driving a motor vehicle exceeding the maximum speed allowed for the road by 80 km/h.
The person under investigation and the proceedings were handed over to the Court of Instruction number 3 of San Javier (Murcia), for the celebration of the corresponding speedy trial.
The establishment of speed controls by the Traffic Grouping of the Civil Guard is part of the objectives of the Road Safety Strategy adopted by the DGT for the decade 2011-2020, as one of the priorities aimed at reducing the accident rate on our roads, especially on conventional or secondary roads.
In this regard, the Traffic Sector of the Civil Guard in Murcia reports that it carries out its specific road safety surveillance activity 24 hours a day, especially in those road sections and points which, due to their special characteristics, carry an implicit risk of accidents.
The Guardia Civil reminds that speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs or the use of mobile phones are, among others, some of the circumstances that may have an impact on road accidents.
