A group of twenty-year-olds from La Spezia knows something about it, who one evening like any other had moved to Versilia near Massa Carrara simply to have fun, but the evening had a totally different outcome.

The road agents stopped them mostly because they were suspicious of some behavior of those present in the car but in particular of the haste of those driving. The driver wriggled through traffic at high speed with the risk of running over even the pedestrians in the pedestrian crossing phase.

Following the check, the boy who was driving was subjected to an alcohol test with negative results. But the somewhat strange behavior of the young people present in the car convinced the police to order them to get out and then check the trunk. And here’s the surprise. The sixth boy was hidden inside.

What happened to the driver and what were the consequences of the infringement for him?

For the driver of the vehicle, the €500 fine was immediately triggered with the deduction of 58 points from the license which obviously was withdrawn. Now the young man will have to give up the document for some time. Meanwhile, he will have to complete all the necessary paperwork and only then will he be able to get his license back.
