App based cabbies in illegal street race

17 Oct 2018


Two Madrid cabbies have been arrested after taking part in an illegal street race.


It has been reported in Euro Weekly News that the two cabbies who operate on an unnamed app platform, were filmed competing on an industrial estate in the Spanish capital.


A specialist police unit, specifically set up to smash street-racing rings, managed to identify the vehicles and the drivers, despite their registration markings being hidden.


The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) database was accessed by officers who then visited the app companies headquarters.


The drivers were then identified by the app company and the drivers were subsequently arrested and charged with reckless driving.
