Kaczyński, Bochenek and Shefernaker are on the passenger seats. Car speedometers show 120 km/h. Everything was recorded on camera.
More than PLN 8,000 – this is the amount of fines imposed on the drivers of cars used by the president of Law and Justice Jarosław Kaczyński, party spokesman Rafał Bochenek and former Minister of Internal Affairs Paweł Głosernaker. In addition to the fine, you could also lose your driving license for three months.
120 km/h with a speed limit of 60 km/h
The night rally of key PiS politicians was immortalized by journalists from the Goniec portal. It took place on Tuesday night after a spontaneous protest in front of the remand center in Warsaw’s Grochów district. The demonstration was related to the arrest of Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik, sentenced to two years in prison.
The offenses recorded by journalists include: driving approximately 120 km/h on the Siekierkowska route, where the speed limit is 80 km/h, or driving above 90 km/h on the Miedzeszyński Embankment with a speed limit of 70 km/h. However, their speed limit was set on the Łazienkowska route, where the speed limit is 60 km/h. There, politicians’ drivers were rushing at a speed of 120 km/h.
Moreover, the material published by Goniec journalists shows other offenses than speeding. The most shocking moment is when one of the limousines “squeezes” in front of a taxi standing in the left lane, regardless of the solid line or the pedestrian crossing. Unfortunately, it was not specified with what accuracy and how the vehicle speed was estimated.
Shefernaker: I wasn’t driving
Inspector commented on the drivers’ offenses to the portal. Marek Sokołowski, former police spokesman. – In Western European countries, drivers of VIP vehicles can drive in accordance with the regulations. They are also often able to drive without using emergency vehicles. And here we have lines, sometimes also police lines, and there are also violations of regulations because someone is in a hurry, he said.
A much more modest comment was given to Messenger by Paweł Głosernaker, a passenger in one of the vehicles. – I wasn’t driving the car, so I don’t know how fast the driver was going – he said.
