Police in Malaga are investigating a 29-year-old man for speeding at 295 kilometres per hour on the AP-7 toll motorway, where it is alleged he also carried out other various manoeuvres that put the lives of other road users at risk, including zigzagging and driving along the hard shoulder.

In addition, the motorist recorded his actions, later uploading the video to a popular social media network, the Guardia Civil revealed.

The driver has been reported for reckless driving with contempt for the lives of other motorists, and will now face a court in Fuengirola.

Guardia Civil traffic officers have reminded motorists that the law calls for a prison sentence of between six months and two years and a driving ban, for up to six years, for “recklessness that puts the lives of others at risk”.
