Overtake patrol car?

Absolutely normal.

Going a little too fast?

Can happen.

But racing past the police at 165 km/h is something you should think twice about.

There is always something to do in Berlin.

This is where most cars are stolen, for example.

Or people want to bring traffic to a complete standstill.

In return, they sometimes get stuck on the road and cause the displeasure of motorists.

For others, everything is going much too slowly in and around the capital, and they are stepping on the gas.

Sometimes more than the police allow.

Happened too quickly: police patrol car.

If law enforcement officers notice this, it can become uncomfortable for the speeder.

That is why many speed drivers are clever enough to brake before visible or known speed traps.

Or if you see a police car in front of you.

The officers on patrol are therefore more used to road users in their environment behaving in a particularly exemplary and lawful manner.

And they might even enjoy a bit of distraction (as in this case, festive car lights).

However, the officials of the Autobahn Police must have been quite amazed in this extreme case, in which a driver on the Berlin A100 was not at all impressed by their presence: the 21-year-old overtook their patrol car at 165 km/h on the wet road - in an area where a maximum speed of 80 is allowed.

He “endangered other road users”, let the Berlin police know on Twitter, and immediately revealed the consequences: “Ride ended & car confiscated”.
