Driving at 90 km / h will again be possible on certain roads in Charente and Deux-Sèvres


After Haute-Marne and Seine-Marne, Charente and Deux-Sèvres, two neighboring rural departments, have in turn announced the return of maximum speed to 90 km / h on nearly 700 km of roads, announced Thursday January 16 communities.

“It is a measure of common sense that has been very studied”, argued Gilbert Favreau, president of the department of Deux-Sèvres who announced Wednesday the increase in speed for 246 km of roads on the four thousand kilometers of the departmental network. “Our choice fell on busy roads, with traffic. The return to 90 km / h will provide comfort in the time management of users, without jeopardizing their safety “, he assured.

The government’s decision on 1st July 2018 to lower the speed to 80 km / h, the starting point for a sling of motorists, bikers and elected officials, “Does not appear as a speed allowing to modify in any way the accidentology”, he said again. The replacement of the panels will have a cost: 50,000 euros.
