Last Monday, while the departmental squadron was doing its usual work, a Briton was flashed at 253 km / h on the A26 motorway in Bussy-Lettrée. While on his way home, returning from vacation, the driver lost his license and his luxury car. He was forced to return home by taxi…
We can never repeat it enough: the speed limit is for everyone ! No particular priority, whether foreign or French. Failure to comply with this limit will always be punishable.
When you are in too much of a hurry to get home!
On June 6, 2022, D-Day anniversary will remain an unforgettable date for this British tourist. Back from vacation and heading home, he was driving at high speed on the A26 motorway, Champagne. driving an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the radar flashed it at 253 km/h while the limit is set at 130 km / h. The motorist has not been identified, but the gendarmes intercepted him in the commune of Saint-Gibrien on the highway. The latter, ironically, is called “the English highway”. Stéphane Mougin, the captain, gave an interview about the reason for their checks in this area. “It was a fixed operation to manage the long Pentecost weekend return flows. In order to punish the perpetrators of offences, but also doing some prevention given that this weekend was intended to be a little busier than the other weekends,” he says.

License confiscated by French law enforcement
Once the British intercepted, his license was immediately confiscated. And unfortunately, for this driver, the prefect gave him a ban on driving anywhere in France for a specified period. In this specific case, the license is returned by post to the driver’s home.

The Aston Martin immediately to the pound!
In addition to the confiscation of the license, other sanctions were also applied. The driver incurs a fifth class fine which could reach 3000€. The saddest thing is that the 725 horsepower Aston Martin is being held in a pound pending trial. This luxury car will be the subject of a “sale at the estate” and will be auctioned for the benefit of the State.
