Tallinn mayor to be deprived of driving license for overspeeding
The Tallinn mayor was caught at overspeeding on June 6, 2012, on Tallinn-Narva highway. A car that he was driving was going at a speed of approximately 84 kilometers per hour(+/- three kilometers per hour), while the allowed speed ceiling amounts to 50 kilometers per hour, writes LETA.
According to the law, exceeding the regulated speed limit by 21 – 40 kilometers per hour is punished with a fine up to a hundred penalty units and, or revocation of driving license for up to six months.
As Estonian newspaper Ohtuleht said, Savisaar has appealed the police's decision in the court.
