Speeding motorists in Austria risk having cars seized and auctioned

Drivers in Austria guilty of extreme speeding will have their cars seized and auctioned off, the government has said, as it seeks to deter “boy racers” by threatening to take away their prized possession.

The planned change in legislation announced by the governing coalition of conservatives and Greens aims to toughen Austria’s rules to bring them closer to those in other countries including neighbouring Germany and Switzerland.

Local authorities say they are trying to bring illegal street races and other cases of extreme speeding under control. While most drivers will not have noticed any races, they do cause deaths, sometimes involving bystanders.
