Police said the teenager’s speed was 95 kph (60 mph) in a road where the speed limit was only 50 kph (30 mph).

The post also read the driver was with four friends at the time he was caught, and apparently was showing off that he could now drive.

As punishment, the driver was slapped with a  €200 ($228 or around P11,930) fine. His license has been revoked for four weeks, but police said he will be allowed once he goes on “expensive retraining,” as per the BBC.

After what happened to the teenager, police had this to say on the matter: “Some things hold for eternity… some not even an hour.”  Katrina Hallare /ra
