A Luxembourg national has been stopped twice in one week while driving his Lamborghini while over the drink-driving limit.
The driver was first stopped at the end of July by the Gassin/Saint-Tropez motorised brigade and was fined 90 euros, since his blood alcohol measure was comparatively low, not exceeding the 0.8 g per litre of blood. However, when he was again stopped in Saint Tropez just days later, this measure had been exceeded.
This time the forty year-old miscreant had to pay a fine on the spot of 750 euros. He was also ordered to attend a court hearing at Draguignan.
Taking advantage of the publicity, the local gendarmerie said it will maintain its vigilance for the safety of all road users.
