In the Oise, we stay at 80km / h
As of July 29, 41 departments have chosen to return to 90km / h on their road network. Oise is one of the communities where the maximum speed is maintained at 80km/h on departmental roads. As confirmed by Jean Dessessart, vice-president of Oise in charge of road infrastructure, and mayor of Lacroix-Saint-Ouen.
“There is no question of going back to 90km/hhe explains. If only for technical reasons. We would have to redo dangerousness studies on part of our road network, to consider a return to 90km/h. And then changing the traffic signs again would cost the department hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have enough problems elsewhere to commit such sums… especially since we have wasted time renovating the roads. I am thinking in particular of the axis linking Senlis to the air base. Above all, moving to 80km/ha has made it possible to reduce deaths and road accidents. It is a file that is unanimous in the departmental majority and even within the opposition. For my part, staying at 80km/h suits me very well. Frankly, it makes no difference to the travel time.»
Adopted in 2018
Since December 2019 and the promulgation of the Mobility Orientation Law, the departments can raise the maximum speed to 90km/h instead of 80km/h. The switch to 80km/h, adopted in 2018, was a decision by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.
In 2019, there were 40 deaths on the roads of Oise, 39 in 2020, 31 in 2021, and 10 in 2022.
