Saturday’s traffic incident with the participation of the chairman of the Civic Platform caused a huge stir in social media. Some point to the seriousness of the offense, others jokingly note that Tusk provided fuel for the Polish Television, which was unfavorable to him.
The incident involving Donald Tusk took place on Saturday at the very end of the village of Wiśniewo near Mława in the Mazowieckie Voivodeship. In accordance with the findings of Wirtualna Polska, the politician was stopped by traffic officers who measured the speed with a mobile speed camera. The PO chairman was supposed to have 107 km / h on the odometer.
As journalist Wojciech Szacki stated, the “case of Mława” is untenable. “The fact that most drivers break the rules is no excuse,” he wrote on Twitter. His opinion seems to be shared by activist Jan Mencwel. As he stated, the PO chief turned out to be an ordinary road bandit. “It is a disgrace, which is a normal country would mean not only losing the driving license but also the end of a political career” – he argues.
The former head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Radosław Sikorski, showed a bit more understanding. As he argues, Donald Tusk was forced to accelerate by the driver of the Seicento. The PO leader himself admitted that the punishment was adequate and accepted it without discussion. Let us remind you that the police decided to take his driving license for 3 months, issue a ticket and 10 penalty points.
