Mauri Peltokangas (Sannf) tells himself about the incident in an update on Facebook.
At the end of January, he drove 137 kilometers per hour on a stretch where the maximum permitted speed is 80 kilometers per hour. It happened on national highway 8 at Munsala in Nykarleby and according to Peltokangas it was about an overtaking.
“A large diesel apparently speeds too fast,” writes Peltokangas.
The consequence for Peltokangas will be a fine and a temporary driving ban.
It is not the first time that the Member of Parliament drives too fast and loses his driver’s license. In 2022 the same thing happened.
Peltokangas is elected from the Vasa constituency. Among other things, he is chairman of the management committee.
