“For the weekend of the Assumption, the roads in the mayenne department were being closely observed, by the Gendarmes.  Several checks were carried out, particularly regarding speeding, “ explains Prioux commander of the squadron departmental road safety.

These controls allowed the arrest of a resident of Ille-et-Vilaine of 19 years old.  He was arrested for speeding at 147 km/h instead of the 80 km/h in force for that stretch of road.  The young person has only had his license for less than a year.  He was caught speeding on Monday at 5.30 pm, on the road from Cossé-le-Vivien to Quelaines-Saint-Gault.

Because he is a new driver, with only six points, his license was withdrawn immediately.
