Crossing the motorway with his cycle over the fence
I took this shot around 0715hrs today and you probably know where already: Camp Chapelon, Pailles. Despite the metallic fence, people keep crossing the motorway and they do not hesitate to make holes in the fence! Authorities have failed to find ways to prevent people from crossing the motorway without using one of the the pedestrian flyover bridges available there.
In today’s shot, you can clearly see the guy pulling himself over the metallic fencing. With his cycle on the other side of the motorway, you can probably guess that his cycle went over the fence too. Too bad that I did not succeed in catching this precious moment. And he looks pretty relaxed to put his life as well as other road users at danger while he could have safely use the flyover bridge located just 5 metres from him!
Who cares anyway? Two speed cameras have been installed in this region to discourage people from speeding so that risks can be minimized while tolerating people crossing the motorway on foot.
