It turns out that being a highway patrol officer is not the safest job in the world. We’ve seen a lot of videos where cops get shot at, insulted and God knows what other stuff. This video shows an officer which, while pulling over a truck, proves to have some amazing reflexes and jump a out of the way a driver that lost control of his car. Pretty amazing stuff!

The heavy snowfall caused a massive accident on a highway in nortwestern Austria. One person, a Spanish woman living in Switzerland, was killed, 30 more were injured (of which 5 are in a very bad condition) and more than 60 cars were damaged.

Police reports that some victims remained trapped in their cars and the rescue efforts were slowed due to the heavy snowfall. The sector of the highway, where the speed limit was 80 mph, was closed by the police, until the road will be cleared.

There’s a lot of controversy these days about European Comission trying to force Germany to impose speed limits on the Autobahn. I personally think that it’s an useless decision and it leaves some of us without the last bastion of speed. With measures taken every week trying to make traffic safer, there are few places where normal people can feel the adrenalin, without having to pay a speed ticket for that.

One thing surprized me though, ZDF, a television in Germany, made a survey and the conclusion was that most of the Germans agree with Europe Comission’s decision. If I was a german, I’d be somehow proud to have a no-limit highway in my country, but it seems I ain’t a german. The German officials spoke out against this decision and let’s hope that they’ll be successful and the Autobahn will still be a hot spot for drivers.
