I pride myself on being a non-hurried motorist, but it's time for 'The Gendarme's Spring Ball', and they need to raise extra money for Pastis, Wine, and Beer.
This means that any Tom Dick or Cro gets lumbered with a hefty fine for exceeding the speed limit by even an eighth of a Kph. I my case, I have just been fined €90 for driving a whincy-bit too quickly in a 50 Kph area. Grrrrrrrr.
So enjoy your ball and booze mes amis; and I hope you all get breathalised on the way home!
