A ban is already in place in several cities, such as in the department of Orne.

“I have just signed, in a decree published this Sunday in the Official Journal, the ban on the sale, port and transport of fireworks mortar”, she explains, justifying this decision by the desire to “put in place massive means to protect the French”, and the fear of seeing “new incidents”, during the national holiday.
