This radar was moved to a pedestrian path

A fixed radar was placed on a path on Mount Baigura, in the Basque Country, for no apparent reason.

According to France Bleu, a fixed radar would have been uprooted from the side of the road near Ossès (1h40 west of Pau), where it was initially installed, and placed in the middle of a path in the Basque Country. The aircraft lies on the path leading to the summit of Mount Baigura. After a long life of flashes and fines, it deserves a little rest… But it must be admitted that it stands out in the great outdoors, overlooking the Pyrenees.

This radar will no longer operate

On the hill, radar gets talked about a lot. Passers-by wonder how could he get there and above all why. But don’t worry, it can’t flash anymore. Anyway, only pedestrians and cyclists pass by now.

Since at least Sunday, January 28, the radar has been seen at this location. Even if the story seems crazy to say the least, it is not surprising in this period of social tension in France, as evidenced by the farmers’ demonstrations.

An intruding element

From now on, walkers must deal with a radar in their landscape. At the local level, France 3 prefers to warn local residents, with humor: “Be careful of runners who go a little too fast, you risk getting flashed!” »

At this time, no one has claimed responsibility for moving this radar. One thing is certain, it is that the radar was removed and placed in its new spot, at altitude, and thathe will no longer flash motorists

If you feel like destroying a radar (fire, theft, explosion), be aware that the sanction can go up to a fine of 75,000 euros and 5 years of imprisonment. In Italy, a man called “Fleximan” is currently wanted after having broken numerous radars. But history does not say whether he crossed the Alps to attack the radars of the Basque Country… To be continued!
