Warning: Danger on the highway A -7 between Torrox and Algarrobo. I have been driving for more than 50 years. The most serious “incident” happened last friday on the highway between Torrox and Algarrobo at 2.45 pm. I was passing a car – my speed was 120 km /hour – and when I was still on the left lane almost at the end of the maneuver a white Audi passed at extremely high speed between my car and the car beside me. His speed was certainly more than 200 km/h. I regularly look in the rearview mirror and did not see him. That driver made a zigzag movement in 1/100 second. My e-mail address is : ludovicoaerts @ gmail.com
Ludo Aerts, Competa
