Mother fined 6,000 kroner for driving recklessly in front of son’s school

Traffic violations piled up like inbox emails for one harried mum

It was an expensive morning for a 29-year-old mother dropping her seven-year-old son off at Gildbroskolen in Ishøj, according to Lokalavisen.

The woman barrelled into the school area at such a high rate of speed that police stopped her immediately. Officers found that the woman’s son was not wearing a seat belt nor was he in an approved car seat. She could also not produce a valid driving licence.

The police accordingly booked her for those offences, after which she proceeded to drive the wrong way through a one-way entrance into the school parking lot.

This is not GTA, mum!
All in all, the woman’s object lesson on how not to drive in a school zone cost her 6,000 kroner and a clip on her driving licence – should she ever find it – and that did not include a speeding fine, since she came into the area so fast that cops didn’t get a chance to clock her.

“It concerns me that a parent would put her own child and other children at risk by driving this way on the small roads near a school,” Copenhagen West Police commissioner Erik Jensen told Lokalavisen.

Jensen said that police are paying especially close attention to school zones during the early weeks of the school year.
