Guest on BFM TV, the secretary of State has recalled the rules in force concerning the limits to travel more than 100km from his home, introduced since the D-day déconfinement. The approach to the weekend of the Ascension, which is usually a great get-you-crossover on the roads of France, he indicated "that there will be controls", while indicating that "up to 200,000 checks have been done last weekend" and "950 PV" prepared.
"not to annoy the French", he stressed. "But in order to ensure the respect of these rules which allow us to avoid (...) the spread of the virus". Until 2 June, the uk is in a situation "temporary" and "we will have at the end of may a meeting point of important for us to project both on the month of June, on the opening of new activities and, more generally, the summer holidays",-he explained.
what was the date of the SNCF will resume 100% of his traffic ? "This is not so much a question of ability," replied Jean-Baptiste Djebbari. "The SNCF is able to upgrade from mid-June all its capacity of traffic (...) the CEO is Jean-Pierre Farandou told me to observe at this moment the same level of reservation as last year (...) if the movement can resume, there will be 100% of the traffic at the end of the month of June".

"We have a guide being published" by the authorities in the sector ", which will set the conditions" of flight in Europe. "It is not impossible to reopen Orly airport to the 26 June, we are working on it", he explained.
"50% of applications for tourism concerns overseas", he detailed. "Some jurisdictions want to see tourism come back, others are more cautious (...) travel will be allowed everywhere in France, including overseas if the epidemiological situation so allows".
When Italy announced last week the reopening of its borders at the beginning of June, what about the French who would like to go there and Italians who would like to come in France ? "We want to share, and other of Alps we have the same measures in terms of safety (...) it means that temporary period runs until 2 June, and there will be new measures."
Asked about the request made in mid-April by the motor carriers that require the suspension of the coasting trade for six months (delivery between two French cities by a foreign carrier and for which the starting point is located outside of France, Ed), Jean-Baptiste Djebbari has not shown favourable. "The flows are what they are, if you don't want the effect of a shortage at the level of the supply (...) in the state it's complicated". On the other hand "there is a need for social regulation at the EU level, this appears to me to be discussed".read also : Tourism: the president of Occitania request free highways this summer
Finally, the secretary of State has responded to the request made last week by Carole Delga, the president socialist of the region, Occitan. The elected requires free access to the highways throughout the summer, in order to support the tourism sector. "This position, we understand, is a little political," he said.

Ms. Delga knows very well that all this is established and managed by contracts that were not negotiated by us, but which continue to apply," said Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, in reference to the privatisation of the French motorways in the years 2000. In addition, the motorway companies have been hard hit during the two months of confinement, and the loss of "80%" of their income.The editorial team conseilleLe slump in global tourism threatens 100 million emploisRéservation, refund, ticket, SNCF...
