ROAD SAFETY: The newly installed turret radar on the RN164 at Plémet in the Côtes-d’Armor (Brittany) has been destroyed
They are supposed to be more resistant because they are perched on masts four meters high. To replace the degraded radars during the movement of “yellow vests”, the Government is banking on turret radars with the objective of installing 1,200 by the end of 2020, according to Interdepartmental Delegate for Road Safety Emanuel Barbe.
These new-generation devices are already targeted, especially in Brittany. Installed for only a few weeks on the RN164, the Turret Radar of Plémet (Côtes-d’Armor) is already out of order.
A turret radar already burned last weekend
As reported by France Bleu Armorique , the device was vandalised in the night from Thursday to Friday. Sawn at the base, the device fell on the track.
Last weekend, a turret radar installed in Plouvara, still in the Côtes-d’Armor, had already been burned and put out of service.
