if a COP is driving in the service of a people dead, in Berlin, unfortunately, to often. A year ago, a police crashed in Berlin car with a Tempo of 90 in a small car, the 21-year-old Fabien Martini died. In this case, the excitement increased because came out that the officials had on the fiscal well-a per Mille alcohol. A policeman in the service of building drunk in an accident that is - we can only hope, and the police - an extreme exception.
But Fabien Martini will be the last victim of a frenzied police officer? Unlikely, this is a look into the past shows. 25 years ago we have hoped that a terrible accident leads to a rethinking of the police. Unfortunately, in vain. In 1993, a police driven car to the Palace bridge in the middle of two small children dead. As is the case with Fabien Martini, the use was a false alarm. A lot was announced after the lock bridge accident, special driving training and accident data recorder, for example.
it has not Brought enough. Because one thing has remained: the rage. It makes simply angry to see how the police shoot the cars through the narrow streets, through Tempo 30 zones, in the darkness, smoothness or poor visibility. As soon as a use of the monitoring station is classified as "urgent", drop all your inhibitions. There is a speed limit for blue light trips, there is not, only the proviso that no one may be at risk. This is too little.
16 years Ago, when two plainclothes customs with maximum speed against a tree, crashed and died, a language expert from the police Bureau of the "hunting fever". Relentlessly, the official is not analyzed: "We have a high number of accidents, if not too often, the rules in the heat of battle would be displaced."
A rule is, for example, that in the case of Express must operations be slowed down at every red traffic light on step speed. Hardly anyone keeps to it, the rule is only on paper. If Fabien Martini is supposed to be racers, the last victim of the Police, then more stringent rules and these are enforced.More about
