We have the first person to have his car confiscated for speeding in Austria

March 25, 2024 – 3:56 pm

Under a new law that came into force in March, drivers who exceed the speed limit in Austria can have their cars confiscated. The legislation has already been implemented, and a Serbian man was forced to surrender his car to the police. By Cronin Zeitung.

The Serbian man living in Switzerland drove his BMW 530i near Satelldt in Upper Austria at a speed well above the legal limit on the A1 motorway. Initially, he overtook a patrol, and soon after was measured with a Travipax laser near Seabachel. The device showed a speed of 223 kilometers per hour.

The car was finally stopped after a few kilometers by a patrolman. The man defended himself by saying that he was in a hurry. After his car was confiscated and his driving license was temporarily cancelled, the speedster and his three passengers were able to continue their journey in a rented car.

According to the law, speeding is considered excessive if a person exceeds the speed limit by 80 kilometers per hour inside a residential area, and by 90 kilometers per hour outside it. Those who do can expect to be confiscated and auctioned off. The police can confiscate the car even if it does not belong to the driver, in which case confiscation is allowed for 14 days.
