The latter also arrived as reinforcements, from 1 November to 8 November, with the main purpose of ensuring safety on the roads: “We are 13, 11 bikers and the agents of the radar car”, explains Senior Sergeant Philippe Ségala. And so far the check has been a success: “In three days we checked 18 people who didn’t have insurance. I did the calculation, it represents 8% of the checks. It’s impressive, we don’t reach that anywhere, not even in Marseille.”he wonders.
