If you are driving in the southwestern region of France this weekend and your car gets pulled over by the police, don’t worry – you could simply be rewarded for being a good driver. The handing of the vouchers will be recorded for broadcast on the radio station so besides €50 worth of petrol, he or she will get also a moment of fame. The initiative is to be carried out six times this year on busy days.

Cops in unmarked cars will keep an eye to see if the driver stops at pedestrian crossings, makes proper use of indicators when turning, stays well within the speed limit. Before the driver gets the reward, he or she will be also checked, if has lost any license points or has been fined for traffic offences. If not, then the driver will be congratulated and handed a voucher for €50 worth of petrol by a journalist from the local France Bleu Périgord radio station, which is sponsoring the initiative.
