Pixabay Gotthard tunnel speeding driver finally serves time

After four years the German driver who raced through the Gotthard tunnel at 200 kph and was sentenced to jail in Switzerland is behind bars.

The man identified as Christian R fled the country before he could serve his sentence in Ticino and vowed never to return.

The Swiss foreign affairs department got involved and a German court also sentenced him to time behind bars. He put that off saying he was to ill to go to prison.

But yesterday police turned up at his home near Stuttgart in Germany and took him away.

The Stuttgart prosecutor’s office confirms he’s now locked up.
