A little high-speed ride at night during curfew? Attention, the gendarmes did not stop the radar checks …

From today, the curfew is generalized in France from 6 p.m. To limit the spread of the coronavirus, the authorities have indeed decided to ban travel between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Even if, in reality, many people are forced to travel during these hours (especially when their work requires it), the police regularly carry out checks to verify that the curfew is being observed.

And beware, they also continue to carry out speed checks. In Isère, on the A43 motorway, a motorist has just paid the price.

259 km / h

The man was indeed controlled at 259 km / h at the wheel of his Audi S3. He explained to the gendarmes that he wanted to go home quickly to respect the curfew. In addition to an immediate suspension of his driver’s license, a summons to court and the confiscation of his vehicle, he and his passenger were also fined 135 euros for not respecting the curfew.
