– Sadness

Geir Martinsen, district manager of the Emergency Police Department (UP) in northern Norway, emphasizes that the case involved is handled by the local police, but he is tough on general grounds.

– A taxi driver’s job is to transport people safely, a special responsibility that he is certainly not used to. Martinsen tells Dagbladet that it is sad to record that someone is willing to take risks at high speed, because the margins are so small.

The UP Chief Minister asserts that over-speeding is often a contributing factor in accidents that end in serious injury and death.

– At such speeds, for example, a puncture can have catastrophic consequences. We strongly warn against this and don’t want to go on the road at all. If something happens in 200, unfortunately we know the outcome, says Martinsen.
