Driving offences

Driving offences - Paris and the Principality have signed an agreement to improve the exchange of information concerning driving offences. Although Monaco has only 40,000 inhabitants, they committed more than 100,000 road traffic offenses last year in France. Monegasque drivers will soon pay their fines when they are flashed in France with the principality and Paris accelerating the exchange of information. In 2018, French radars detected more than 100,000 offenses committed by vehicles registered in the principality. Since 2016, the authorities of the two countries are already exchanging, but thanks to the agreement that has just been concluded, these exchanges will become systematic. They will only concern drivers considered to be the most dangerous, explains Emmanuel Barbe, Interministerial Delegate for Road Safety.

On the other hand, the reciprocal will not be valid with Monaco, where there is only one speed radar. However, a French motorist can always be arrested by agents of public safety.

In 2018, 17 countries of the European Union agreed to communicate to France the identity of flashed drivers. More than two and a half million tickets were issued that year. Belgium leads with 418,000 tickets, followed by Spain with 394,000 fines. Germany completes the podium with 348,000 PV sent. The United Kingdom, Sweden and Ireland have been cooperating only since the beginning of the year. On the other hand, Finland, Denmark, Croatia and Bulgaria do not exchange information.
