German police officer goes viral by response to shock

We've all been stuck in traffic caused by people who slow down to watch a major incident on the highway.

It is unnecessary, disturbing and disrespectful, especially if you are taking pictures.

Now, a German police officer has gone viral for his commendable response to those photographic and fatal accidents on one of the country's highways.

Stefan Pfeiffer was caught by the camera beating the motorists and offering to show them the bodies of the victims of the accident in an overwhelming attempt to encourage drivers and pbadengers to stop filming the consequences of the incidents.

"Come on, I'll show you something," Pfeiffer said in a video posted on Twitter by the BR24 news network. "Do you want to see the dead, take pictures?"

"There he is, he's lying, do you want to see him? No, do not you want to see him? Then why are you taking pictures?" he added. "What a shame."

After his tirade, Pfeiffer hit the motorists with a € 128.50 (£ 113.25) fine.

Since then, the video has accumulated more than 770,000 visits and obtained almost 16,000 retweets.

"For us it is definitely an opportunity to confront people about their behavior," Pfeiffer said. "The simple fact of demanding € 128.50 and sending them on their way will not really teach them a lesson, they need to understand what they are really doing."

"When we scandalize them, we want to make it clear that this is not a game but a bitter reality."

In Germany, if you take unauthorized photographs, it is a crash scene, subject to a € 128.50 fine, and you risk causing other accidents on the road.

In the incident presented in the video, a 47-year-old Hungarian truck driver died after his vehicle collided with a trailer on the A6 motorway near Nuremberg. The incident took place on Tuesday of this week.
