Laigneville. A wedding procession collects nearly 3,000 euros in fines by video verbalization
Once again, a wedding procession in cars passing through Laigneville was fined a multitude of fines for traffic offenses on Saturday July 16. The overall bill is salty: 2,835 euros in fines drawn up via video verbalization. Mayor Christophe Dietrich made these incivilities known through social networks.
It is ready by 3 p.m. when a procession, organized for a wedding celebrated in Clermont, crosses Laigneville. “At that time, I had just celebrated a wedding in my town hall“, explains Christophe Dietrich. “In Laigneville when there is a wedding, there is necessarily a police officer assigned to the event. We then posted ourselves in front of the video protection screens and we observed nearly 21 infractions. Dangerous overtaking, traffic in the wrong direction, roundabouts taken upside down, failure to wear a seatbelt… I have not counted the points which will be withdrawn, but that represents 2,835 euros in fines, almost only fines at 135 euros“.
“They are frankly not smart. One of the participants warned them by telling them that in Laigneville, they shouldn’t be stupid.

Christophe Dietrich does not hide his annoyance: “we shouldn’t let that happen anymore. We learned that this procession almost created a face-to-face accident in Clermont during the day. And they are frankly not smart, one of the participants warned them by telling them that in Laigneville, one should not be stupid. Besides, it is one of the only ones that has not been verbalized. For my part, I do not want my police officers to expose themselves to this kind of behaviour. This is why everything is done by video verbalization. This time we weren’t able to do the speed readings, because it’s a bit complicated via the cameras, but in addition they were driving rather fast.»
On his social networks, the city councilor collects many congratulations and other testimonies which enjoin the mayors of other municipalities to do the same.
