French Gendarmerie Sets Up Full
Diversion Against Alcohol, Drugs
40 drunk and 11 drugged drivers were caught in a large-scale enforcement operation by our colleagues of Gendarmerie nationale.
The operation was carried out by the Essonne department road traffic division during a November weekend on the N20 – a major road carrying traffic between Paris and the Franco-Spanish border. The gendarmes from several units diverted the whole flow of vehicles to carry out checks - in particular of alcohol level and narcotics.
