Italian Police Crash Lamborghini And Make Roads Safer

italian-police-lamborgTHE Italian police operate a patrol car. Well, they did. They now operate a tow-truck on which a broken Lamborghinis car sits.

The car was meant to track down speeding motorists. The car can reach over 200mph. A crack team of drivers will bear down on speedsters can nab them.

Nothing can stop them. Unless that motorist in his Seat Ibiza travelling at around 4mph doesn’t look when pulling out of the petrol station in Cremona and… Bammo!

What they apparently were not prepared for was a distracted motorist who pulled out of a petrol station without looking. The top police driver swerves and collides with a line of parked cars with such force that one of the stationary vehicles ended up on the police car’s roof. How’s that for keeping the roads safe?

The Lamborghini Gallardo was worth£130,000 and capable of reaching 62mph in four seconds – but capable of stopping in under 30 (timing dependent on size of car stood in path).
