The sunny days are coming and with them the desire for a long weekend. For many French people, particularly Parisians, Normandy is the ideal destination to go and relax for a few days by the sea and thus get a first taste of the summer vacation. Only, as soon as the temperatures become spring-like, the road leading to Deauville, a chic destination that is still very popular, looks like a city. a funnel.

The A13 and A14 motorways, which also serve Rouen and Le Havre, will soon become free-flowing. The toll barriers will disappear to make way for more people. gantries equipped with cameras which will overlook the highway. These will be programmed to read license plates or remote control badges. each passage, but also to measure the size of the vehicles because the prices differ depending on their size. Two gantries will be put into service from June, the other twelve towards the end of 2024.

This new system should make it possible to eliminate slowdowns at toll barriers, which quickly form traffic jams when traffic is heavy.

Either half an hour less spent in your car, or if you prefer, extra time to be able to enjoy the sweetness of the Normandy beaches.

If motorists will soon no longer have access to take out their credit card on the A13 and A14 motorways, they will not forget to pay for that. If nothing will change for the subscribers, since their badge will be read by the cameras fixed on the gantries, the other drivers will have 72 hours to go online to the site www.sanef.com or go to a tobacco shop.

This will stipulate to pay the toll costs plus 10 euros within 15 days. This increase will increase 90 euros once the 15 days have passed. And if the user continues to play dead, after 63 days, the fine will increase to 100%. 375 euros! Enough to really add to the bill for a short weekend away. Deauville.
