Bragging on YouTube Results in Criminal Charges

18-old Marko Petrovic probably regrets recklessly driving trough Sozina, Montenegro’s longest vehicular  tunnel at the breakneck speed of 260 km/h ( 161 m/h) –or at least sharing the experience on YouTube for the whole world to see.

While the entire world has not seen it  yet (only 13k views for now), Montenegro police certainly has: they should up at his parents’ home, filing criminal charges of reckless endangering and impounding his dad’s  Audi A8.

(A commenter to the video thinks the car is a BMW, not an A8, since he sees the iDrive – I have no clue, car experts feel free to jump in.)

Anyway, I think this is a great initiative: I would strongly encourage reckless drivers, muggers, robbers, all sorts of criminals to follow suit: document your act, earn your well-deserved fame on Youtube.  At least in countries where you can get prosecuted based on a video. smile_wink

Update:  This kid’s timing was really, really bad.  Barely a month after he posted his video, Montenegro banned Facebook and Youtube access if all public sector offices:

“With the aim of optimising traffic and lessening the network loads of governmental agencies during work, access was disabled to potentially dangerous sites and sites that generate large capacities,” the government told AFP.
