The lawsuit against the Czech millionaire who was said to have driven at speeds of up to 417 km/h on the German A2 has been dropped. A spokesman for the Prosecutor’s Office in Stendhal in Saxony-Anhalt told the dpa news agency that there were not enough doubts to bring charges. There were extensive reviews of the incident, and it was not necessary to interrogate the accused.
The fast driver had been charged with a forbidden race meaning one trip. According to the Penal Code, an individual race is also punishable if the driver “moves at an inappropriate speed, grossly in violation of traffic and recklessly in order to reach the highest possible speed”. From the prosecutor’s office, the three realistic requirements are not available, the spokesperson said.
At the beginning of the year, the millionaire posted a video on the Internet in which he was heating up over the A2 between Berlin and Hanover. The speedometer depicted apparently shows a speed of up to 417 km / h. This and other videos are said to have been created in July 2021.
There are no indications of unsafe driving.
There is no speed limit in the highway section. The spokesman said that according to road traffic regulations, you can only drive at the speed permitted by visibility, weather conditions and the personal skills of the car and the driver. In the video you can see very good traffic conditions due to the chosen route, early time and time of year. There is no evidence of an unsafe driving style.
In addition, the car, the Bugatti Chiron, was designed to drive at such high speeds. From the prosecution’s point of view, no one was at risk during the lawsuit. The spokesman said the driver could not be accused of recklessness because he chose the best times, weather and road conditions.
