Driver stopped for 15 violations in 11 minutes

A report from Gossau, Switzerland says an Italian man took reckless driving to new heights in 11 frantic minutes of traffic violations.

They first spotted the 47-year-old driver as he raced his jeep past an unmarked police car at 100 mph in a rainstorm.

Driving dangerously close to other cars on the autobahn, he then allegedly ignored police attempts to pull him over — first with a stop sign, and then with flashing lights and sirens.

Police say the man drove through a construction zone at over 8o mph, nearly twice the speed limit, before being stopped.

They seized the man's driver's license, and a judge ordered him tested for medications and illegal drugs.

15 traffic violations in 11 minutes is ssurely some kind of record.
