With the sunny days, the summer heat already present and a holiday air that begins to trot in the heads, would motorists relax their vigilance on the roads of Seine-et-Marne?
Thursday, from 15:30 p.m. to 17 p.m., about fifteen police officers, municipal and national, carried out checks with binoculars on the edge of the Penetrante (D 606). This expressway was put into service in 1971 and dumped a flood of thousands of vehicles, including heavy goods vehicles, on Avenue Thiers in the direction of Fontainebleau and Nemours.
The police intercepted many motorists in violation. In particular, the police found twelve speeding violations for people who drove at more than 110 km / h instead of the 90 km authorized on this two-time-two urban lane towards Boulevard Chamblain where the speed is limited to 30 km / h. The result: four cases of phone driving without Bluetooth, driving under drugs, a red light burned, a failure to wear a seatbelt, an impounded vehicle, etc.
Intensification of controls throughout the agglomeration
In the office of the mayor of Melun, Louis Vogel (Horizons), it is admitted that "the flow of vehicles is a concern that we know well. The Penetrante is an axis that some use as an urban highway, to cross the territory faster than via the city center... The town hall announces that it is studying the possibility of placing educational radars on the axes that fall under the competence of the municipality.
"This kind of control will intensify. Not only in Melun but throughout the constituency [Editor's note: the agglomerations of Melun and Sénart]," warns Commissioner Jérôme Georges, head of the Melun Val de Seine agglomeration police station.
