The Loiret gendarmerie saw the black car flash past around midnight on Saturday evening on the A10 near Chaingy, a town on the western edge of Orléans. There is a speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour on site. The corrected speed of the car was 210 kilometers per hour. In the event of such a major speeding violation, motorists must surrender their driver’s license. Normally the car would also have been confiscated, but that did not happen in this case because the Lamborghini did not belong to him.
At the end of March, a 27-year-old Dutchman was flashed near Nancy at a speed of 215 kilometers per hour where a maximum of 130 was allowed. The twenty-something was driving a rented 4×4 car on the A31 motorway (Burgundy-Luxembourg) towards Nancy and was caught near Moutrot in the Meurthe-et-Moselle department. After correction, a speed of 204 kilometers per hour remained. In addition to withdrawing his driver’s license, this resulted in a fine of 1000 euros. Since none of his passengers had a driver’s license, the group had to continue by taxi.
