I really don't like the sound of this. It gives the state a ready-made excuse to force people out of their cars simply based on a number rather than any actual harm done. The fine and points system that we have here is surely enough? Also, you can be sure that something draconian like this will find its way to the UK where the rabid anti-car brigade will be salivating at the thought of forcibly removing people from their cars. 😠

If you own a car, Big Brother is coming after you big time.

Austria is set to clamp down on reckless drivers by confiscating their cars and selling them at auction.

In a bill presented on Wednesday, Vienna promised to get tough on drivers who “refuse to learn”.

Starting in March next year, anyone caught breaking the speed limit by 60 km/h (37mph) inside an urban area or settlement will have their car immediately confiscated, said Leonore Gewessler, the country’s transport minister.

The same will apply to people breaking the speed limit by 70 km/h (43mph) on country roads or on motorways.

What most don't realize is communism and fascism are the same, totalitarian dictatorships. Theyd tax you just for blinking and ruin your credit for speaking out against them like they do in chyna.

Ya, pull their licenses, even pull their cars and impound them, but once selling is added in that adds financial gain and it is a steep slope downhill.

What Austra want to do isn't communism, but it's certainly a form of totalitarian control which is why I posted this thread.

In Russia, people mysteriously fall out of high windows if they piss off Putin, don't they? Such a lovely "democracy" they've got over there.

Just like Jerry Epstein and John McAFee didn't commit suicide, it was clintoncide

I agree that those two were likely murdered, but, um, Clinton hasn't been in power for decades now.

btw, in the case of Epstein, he'd rubbed shoulders with Trump, who was in power at the time and the scandal could have tainted him, so if you want to suspect anyone of murder, suspect him.

And don't forget you need to have strong evidence for such outlandish claims, which of course you don't. Spreading misinformation is against the forum rules and you've been doing this quite a lot, so please stop doing this now.

So seizing cars is pretty bad... Do you think this will become more of an issue as these newer electric cars allow remote shutdowns and tracking?
