A driver intercepted during a test with a car that is not yet his!

Sunday May 29, a driver in his fifties who intended to afford a Ferrari California goes to a Ferrari dealership. To get a taste of the vehicle, the 50-year-old asks to try the car… All in all logical! Rather than being careful with a car that doesn’t belong to him yet, he had a very heavy foot on the accelerator. The 50-year-old gets caught on radar during a “small” acceleration “on the departmental road 15 in Jouy-le-Potier. While the maximum speed is limited to 80 km/h on this axis, it was driving at 142 km/h. The gendarmes set off in pursuit and ended up by intercepting it.

Luxembourg license suspended in France? Eh yes !

The arrested driver is a “young” French resident and fortunately for him, his Luxembourg license has not yet been exchanged for a French license. He therefore does not have a points license. But given the extent of the offense, he was fined immediately and had his license revoked. As required by law, the driver must have a driving license depending on his country of residence. If that had been the case for this Luxembourger, a French resident, he would have to undergo training to recover his sesame. Such an excess of 60 km / h for the French leads to several sanctions. In addition to license suspension which could last up to three years, the national also incurs a fine of €1,500 and a road safety awareness course.
