Toulouse ring road: another covered radar
The speed radar of Ponts-Jumeaux, on the Toulouse ring road, inland, was covered during the demonstration by bikers against the ZFE.
Bikers do not like speed cameras and they showed it again during the demonstration last Saturday, November 6, against the future Low Emission Zone (ZFE) of Toulouse. The fixed speed camera located on the central reservation of the ring road at Les Ponts-Jumeaux, at the level of the bridge over the Garonne, was covered with a black plastic sheet. And it still is ever since, which makes it inoperative.
The scenario has been repeated for several years, especially since 2019 and the drop in speed from 90 to 80 km / hour on the secondary roads. After each demonstration of bikers, the radars of the peripheral are obscured. And their return to service takes time because the maintenance of the radars is delegated to private providers “which governs on average every eight to ten days”, explained recently the delegation to road safety attached to the interior.
Even if the radars are not degraded properly with the installation of a tarpaulin, the act is nevertheless a criminal offense. The author, if he is surprised, risks a fine of up to € 15,000, a sentence of general interest and an entry in the criminal record. Site of the prefecture recalls it on its.
