Road safety: Double checks started in France!
The French police is conducting some kind of psychological tests on the roads introducing a new method of checking speeding drivers from the beginning of March in Strasbourg. On a straight line two radars and check points are placed at a distance of 2 km (1.2 mi) from each other.
If a driver is caught speeding at the first check point he gets only some verbal recommendations, no ticket. If he is speeding also at the next radar though, the driver gets the maximum penalty.
Thus a second chance is given to the drivers which makes all the difference. This method requires a new approach to road safety and excessive police force, reasonable speed limits and responsible drivers.
