Urban rodeos: by scooter or motorbike, impunity continues

DECRYPTION - Despite a dedicated law and several successive action plans, the State remains powerless to stop these crazy races of motorized two-wheelers.



Turning a weakness into a strength is a fine art.

See the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin.

“In seven days, 2914 anti-rodeo operations carried out, 338 arrested, 157 seized.

I have given instructions to further intensify our action.

From tomorrow, each police station will carry out at least three anti-rodeo operations per day.

I will do everything to protect honest people against these offenders”
