If it is favourable to the limitation to 110 km/h on the highways - proposed by the 'convention' for the climate, Yannick Jadot knows the character unpopular to such an extent. In 2018, the lowering of the limitation to 80km/h on regional roads had set fire to the powder, and sown the first seeds of the movement of the "yellow vests". Two years later, the idea of a new limitation proposed by the 150 citizens drawn at random from the convention, is already attracting criticism. A petition launched by the association "40 million motorists" has already collected more than 500,000 signatures against the measure."We are no longer in contempt"
Guest on RTL on Tuesday morning, the former head of the list EELV to the european, however, has indicated that it does not "compared" absolutely not" the controversy of 80km/h with this new idea of a speed limit. "Why 80km/h have been so wrong felt? Because it was the defiance of Paris for the rural areas. We're talking about highways. All the world is using. It is no longer in contempt", he wanted to emphasize.
The ecologist has, however, proposed a compromise. Namely : "lower tariffs on the highways," to compensate for "reduced speed". "I am sure that our countrymen, even by referendum, would agree to this measure", has been certified by Yannick Jadot, then, that the idea of a national consultation is a hypothesis proposed by the executive. The ecologist took the opportunity to reminded that the speed limit also allowed the French to reduce ' their consumption (of gasoline), thus improving their purchasing power and their security."
in addition, Yannick Jadot is no lack of stressed that citizens chosen by lot to be the 'convention' "came to the same conclusions" that the environmentalists of EELV, as evidenced by the 150 proposals that they have submitted to government this weekend. "In our municipal programs, on the canteens bios, on the thermal renovation, on public transport, on the new relationship at work, we will apply all these measures," assured the member of the european parliament, that indirectly link with the second round of municipal elections on Sunday, where the greens could win several large cities such as Lille, Grenoble or Lyon.
