He was clocked travelling almost twice the speed limit - at 95km/h (60mph) in a 50km/h (30mph) zone.
If that happened in CH he'd lose not only his newly acquired driving license.

Well, almost.

"He has been formally banned for four weeks, but police said he would only get his licence back after "expensive retraining".

He is also facing a 200 fine, two points on his licence once it is restored, and his probationary period as a new driver has been lengthened from two years to four."

"Some things last for ever - others not for an hour," German police wrote in their statement.
