Two GM employees go to jail after riding a Chevy Corvette C8SJanuary 11, 2020
A strange incident took place in one small American city. Two factory employees took a sports car for a test drive. They were later detained due to numerous traffic violations and significant speeding.
We know how fast the new Chevrolet C8 Corvette can be. But we also know that the rules of the road are quite strict in all countries. And also heard that offenders in the United States are punished in all severity. It’s all the more strange to hear the news that two GM employees mixed up the city with the race track and did not know about the possible consequences.
Alexander Tim and Mark Derkats were stopped by the police on the night of January 8 after exceeding the speed limit on a street in Bowling Green, Kentucky. They are now charged with speeding, reckless driving and using a race car on public roads. However, they stated that General Motors did not give any instructions that prohibit the use of test sports cars on city streets.
At the moment, two prototypes are from the company that took them from the fine parking lot. Whether Tim and Mark are currently working at GM is unknown. It is also not reported how two expensive sports cars were in their hands, why they went to ride around the city, and what the company was going to do. Drivers are threatened with deprivation of rights, as well as a possible term in prison, but most likely they will finish off with community service.
We are aware of an incident involving our test vehicles and are currently investigating it. Safety remains our top priority at General Motors. At the moment, we have no comments. “- said representatives of the concern.
In the meantime, General Motors could turn the Corvette into an independent sub-brand. Rumors about the appearance of the Chevy Corvette sub-brand have been around for a long time. Moreover, the new division of General Motors is touted a whole line of different bodies.
