Radars have collected 1 billion euros in 2017

In France, speed cameras have “flashed” 4.9 million times in 2017 (compared to 3.5 million times in 2016). An increase that the Ministry of the Interior attributes to the commissioning of 72 autonomous radars and 32 additional discriminating radars . The increase in the number of tickets has logically led to “an increase in revenue”:

“In 2017, this amount amounted to 1.013 billion euros (+ 10%) for the “radars” part (flat-rate fines), compared with the 3.6 billion euros spent by the State each year for road safety, and the € 38.3 billion in annual damage caused by road accidents to society, ie 1.7% of France’s GDP.”

Is the speed reduction at 80 km/h effective?

The number of dead on the roads of France  has seen a rebound in September  after two months of decline , continuing the question of  lowering the speed limit to 80 km/h  entered into force in July.
