where does the ticket money go?

Here is the question everyone is asking: where did the money for road traffic repression go in 2020? The Drivers’ Defense League gives an answer!

You are wondering where the astronomical sums of French radars have gone in 2020 ? Amounts blithely exceeding the hundreds of millions of euros. To answer it, the Driver Defense League drew up a detailed infographic!

To do this, the association used the latest data available from last year, from the document of the 2022 finance bill. It contains the details of the distribution of revenues related to law enforcement radars of all types that are rampant in France. Without forgetting the verbalizations resulting from the various physical checks carried out by the police.

1.39 billion euros in revenue in 2020

Thus, in total they are almost 1.4 billion euros which were garnered last year, with an almost equitable distribution.

On the one hand, fines resulting from automated controls count as 704 million euros. On the other hand, the fines drawn up during road checks by the police reach almost 683 million euros

. And this, despite a health crisis that immobilized our vehicles for long weeks (not to say months, or even years) in our garages …

However, we invite you to be careful while driving. Traffic has now regained its usual density and therefore the risk of bad behavior that goes with it. Especially when we know that the results of the road mortality in October 2021 starts to rise again … A first since the Covid-19 pandemic.

What distribution?

Referring to the infographic produced by the League for the Defense of Drivers, one observation is undeniable. The money for tickets, whether they come from fixed speed cameras or from police checks, are used mainly for deleveraging of State.

Fortunately, in order not to anger the taxpayer, part of the “revenue” is also donated to more “noble” causes. Like the hospitals or even local authorities. But in much smaller proportions, obviously.
