It is a completely unexpected report received by a Breton integration association. His agricultural tractor, used for construction sites where reintegration staff work, was flashed at… 146 km / h. The icing on the cake, the alleged offense has been identified on Spanish roads!
The president of the association in question, called Le Relais and based in Retiers (Ille-et-Vilaine), first thought it was a "scam". "So we went to the local gendarmerie, which asked us to appeal for usurpation of license plates," he testified in Ouest-France.
The minutes of the Spanish gendarmerie reached him on February 6. And therefore stipulates that the tractor, a Renault registered in France, was traveling at a speed of 146 km / h (instead of 120 on this route) on January 23 at 9:39 am, in the Leon region.
For this offense, it is indicated that the association must pay a fine of 100 euros - or 50 euros if it pays immediately.
“It was the number of the agricultural tractor at our integration site. This case which we would have done well is therefore the fact of a usurper, “still reacts the association manager to our colleagues. Because the truck has not left its Breton lands, and obviously has never been able to drive at this speed.
