At more than 250 km/h you can avoid being caught by radars!

A 39-year-old man, who drove at 275 km/h, was acquitted after his lawyer analyzed the radar notice. Explanations.

It’s quite contradictory but driving in (very) excessive speeding can help you avoid being sanctioned. In fact, the conviction is reserved for motorists going at a speed between 0 and 250 km/h. Beyond that, the police radars will do nothing to you because they do not take your presence into account. In any case, this is what a technical point of their operation reveals.

Are the radars poorly adjusted?

A 39-year-old French driver was flashed at 275 km/h six months ago, on the highway. While he was driving a large German sedan, he was arrested in the process. If the speed chosen was 257 km/h, the fact remains that this individual faced a serious sanction, including a fine of 1,500 euros and a 3-year license suspension. As a repeat offender, he could even be accused of a misdemeanor with this new 5th class fine and the loss of 6 points on his license.

Technical error

This motorist was lucky enough to be defended by a lawyer who found a solution to avoid a lot of embarrassment. And for good reason, he did not receive any sanction because according to a technical point of the use of radar, it only allows speeds between 0 and 250 km/h to be taken into account. His client was therefore never flashed because he was above this limit. The charges against him were therefore quashed.

The lawyer asked the Dieppe police court to drop the charges. He won his case concerning the request for annulment on November 8. The judges were unable to object because the radar never actually displayed the speed at which the driver was traveling. The main problem concerns calibration speed radar. We suspect that the police will quickly change their system in order to be able to track down speeding drivers. Waiting for, driving above 250 km/h is not punishable. On the other hand, it is not recommended, because the day the radars work correctly, trouble could well fall on the culprit…
