First, she bypassed the cars stuck in the traffic jam, then ran the red light on the bridge under repair. And all in front of the policemen. The 36-year-old got a fine and seven penalty points.
The incident took place on Friday at 11.43 in Rogalinek near Poznań. The bridge over the Warta, connecting Rogalinek with Mosina, is being rebuilt there, and a swinging movement has been introduced. On both sides of the bridge there are traffic lights that allow drivers to enter the crossing. When the “red” light is on, cars may be driving in front of you. However, the 36-year-old driving the Ford did not heed it.
First, the woman overtook the cars in the traffic jam. Before the signaling itself, she pushed her car between standing vehicles to let the car coming from the opposite direction pass. Finally, at a red light, she ran over the bridge.
Because she was in a hurry to go to work
Everything was recorded by a camera in a police car which the woman overtook. The policemen, seeing her dangerous behavior, stopped her for inspection. As she explained to the officers, she was in a hurry to work.
– It was worth waiting a few minutes at the traffic lights, because the road control took longer anyway, and in addition ended with a fine of 600 zlotys for the 36-year-old and seven penalty points – informs Marta Mróz from the Poznań police.
