But what exactly is insane driving? You can read more about that here:
* Negligent manslaughter or negligent damage to someone’s body or health in particularly aggravating circumstances can be considered insane driving.
* With the new law, the penalty for negligent manslaughter was increased by 150 percent in particularly aggravating circumstances. Before the law was changed, one could be punished with 16-18 months in prison.
* Particularly reckless driving is also considered insane driving.
* If you exceed the speed limit by more than 100 percent, when driving over 100 kilometers per hour.
This could be the case, for example, if you drive over 130 kilometers per hour in a place where you can drive a maximum of 60 kilometers per hour. In addition, it is also insane driving if you drive over 200 kilometers per hour.
* Drunk driving with a blood alcohol level above 2.00 is also considered insane driving.
* The new law makes it easier for the state to seize and confiscate a car that has been used for insane driving.
The change in the law opened up the possibility of confiscating cars used for insane driving. This also applies in the case of cars that are leased or borrowed from someone else.
* As a starting point, you can also be sentenced to an unconditional revocation of the driving license for a minimum of three years.
