France: Finally A Politician Who Is Starting To Use His Brains

We know by now that most politicians, at least it's the case here in France, suffer from a terminal disease; CRI - also known as Cranial Rectal Inversion or if you really want to know the popular term; they got their heads up their ass. But sometimes one politician actually comes up with a good proposition.

During rush hour most motorways into the big cities are jammed up. Enormous queues of traffic align the roads, driving in at a snail's pace. Only motorcycles escape this tedious daily routine. All lanes are bumper-to-bumper. All lanes??? No, there is always one lane that does not have any traffic:- the emergency lane.

Emergency lane traffic jam

In France driving, even riding your motorcycle, on the emergency lane will cost you €135 in fines and 3 points (out of 12) on your driving license. Now the Minister of Transport, Frederic Cuvillier, wants to open the emergency lane during rush hour.

It's not a new idea, some countries allow this already, but it's a first here in France. But of course, it's never straightforward since he's wants to put up a series of restrictions requiring drivers to man themselves with a checklist.

The hours that you are allowed to drive in the emergency lane will be restricted, it will only apply to buses, taxis and cars with more than 1 person in the vehicle AND it will NOT apply to motorcycles (we are never allowed to do anything..).

So even if we will not be able to use the emergency lane, we will at least profit from it, since there will be less cars on the road. But then if you're lane splitting, it doesn't really matter.

Good to see one politician doing something positive. Now let's see if the other politicians follow.
