Vanvidsbilister raging Denmark: You will be killed on the spot

most have probably tried it before. You comply with the speed limit on the highway, and all of a sudden you are overtaken with 200 kilometres an hour.

Immediately go the idea through to you:

Think, if I had pulled out of the moment, 'vanvidsbilisten' drove past?

Yes, this scenario is certainly not unthinkable-and certainly not with the thought that so far this year has been almost a doubling in the number of charges against the so-called vanvidsbilister, as they are dubbed in the vernacular.

according to DR P4 is the number of drivers who are charged with either having run twice as fast as you may, or with more than 200 kilometers per hour on a highway, has risen from 26 in 2018, the entire 42 preliminary in 2019. And it is only figures from north Zealand, Vestegnens and the Copenhagen Police.

"It is completely crazy to run so strongly among the other people, and our roads are not built for the speeds," says Christian Berthelsen, policewoman at Rigspolitiets National Færdselscenter, who is of the belief that one has the same challenges in other police districts.

According to a report from the Aib, it is especially young men aged 18 to 24 years, who is prone to 'risk ' drive', but Christian Berthelsen do not believe that the increase in charges is an expression of that which must necessarily come more vanvidsbilister on the roads.

"We have put a greater control pressure, and we have been aware of how the cars running. There are stretches, which are more popular than others, and it is typically big wide roads where you will be seen as, for example, H. C. Andersen Boulevard and highways," he explains.

But although there is talk about the big and wide roads, so stresses Christian Berthelsen, that it is associated with great risk to run so fast the sites.

"In the cities there are people everywhere, and you don't know if they are on the sidewalk, and on the highway you run the risk that suddenly there is a queue," he says further, adding that it is also dangerous when people are not concentrating on driving, or running slalom between the cars.

Bilinspektør: You die on the spot

It is only quite a few months ago that a 35-year-old police officer was beaten to death at Langebro in Copenhagen, when a person in a leased Audi slammed head-on into a small town Hyundai i30 with high speed.

And just death is thus the consequence, when there is talk about such high speeds. It tells bilinspektør at DanCrash Per Bo Hansen.

Have you been out of unpleasant experiences with drivers, running fast, or are you even one of the "vanvidsbilisterne", so hear B. T. would like from you. Write to sboa@bt.dk

"If you're running 200 miles an hour into a car with the same weight, then place on the car almost 100 miles an hour, and an acceleration from 0 to 100 in 0.1 second, as a collision takes, it beats all the people to death," says Per Bo Hansen and adds, that it is irrespective of whether they are new or old cars.

"A size can do it. If you come tonsende with 200 kilometres an hour into a bus, then do them in the bus enough to cope, but it will go beyond yourself," he says.

According to Per Bo Hansen, it takes a newer car about six seconds to slow from 200 kilometers per hour to 0.
