December 17th, 2010 by Key | Posted in News | 33 Comments Â»
(Netease) Sichuan Online reported on December 16, on the night of December 14, 4 drivers, Yin, Zhou, Zhang and Zhu each drove their newly bought Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and two Porsche 911s and past a traffic police on duty. The Lamborghini also did not hang the license plate. Highway traffic police sent two police cars and eventually caught all four speeders. The police conducted a 3-hour security warning education and ordered them to each write a self-criticism.
â€œFor luxury sports cars are racing on the highway, the super cars look like jets.â€� â€œA police car on duty also is forced to speed up, seriously endangering peopleâ€™s safety.â€� 6:30 pm, On December 14, Chengnan Highway traffic police received several reports on the phone, so they sent two police cars to intercept the speeders.
6:35 pm, 4 sports cars sped by the police. The police spoke on the loudspeaker â€œSports car drivers, please pull over for inspection.â€� But the 4 cars never even slowed down and just roared away. The police started the chase. However the police cars could not keep up with these super cars, as the roaring sound of the car engines faded away, four sports cars quickly disappeared in front of their eyes. The two traffic police did not give up and continued to pursue towards the direction to Chengdu.
Chengnan highway tunnel was under construction, vehicles all had to change lanes and slow down in this section. Two other traffic police were at the construction site directing traffic; they also had been keeping an eye out for luxury sports cars ever since they heard about the report. At about 6:40 pm, indeed, a Lamborghini, a Mercedes-benz SLS AMG and two Porsche 911s drove up to the section of the highway in construction. They could only move slowly there, while the two chasing highway traffic police caught up to them there.
Sandwiched by the police, 4 sports cars were intercepted. In front of the traffic police, 4 drivers all acted very low-key. After taking the mug shots, police further investigated driversâ€™ identities and found Yin, Zhou, Zhang and Zhu, whose parents are all very influential businessmen in Chongqing.
According to the report, 4 of them each drove their newly bought luxury sports cars (total worth about 10 million yuan, thatâ€™s 1.5 million USD) from Chongqing to Chengdu for a racing event. They decided to start the â€œwarm upâ€� when drove on the empty freeway. The Lamborghini was also missing license plate.
In the police station, the police conducted a 3-hour long safety warning education on these â€œsecond generation richâ€� kids, and also carried out the punishment according to the law: 4 drivers were fined 150 yuan (thatâ€™s about 20 USD) with 3 points on their driving record; the Lamborghini driver was fined 150 yuan with 6 points for not having a license plate in front of the car.
â€œIn terms of speeding, because the radar could not have a read on their speed at the time, so we donâ€™t have the evidence to give them punishment for that right now.â€� Traffic police said.
After accepting their punishment, Yin, Zhou, Zhang and Zhu all had to write a self-criticism on the hood of their cars.
Just a little past 10 pm, 4 guys each drove their luxury sports cars back on the Chengnan Highway.
