Australia On the greenway, a lot of people and ... incivility
Incivility, disrespectful disregarding… four municipalities in Morbihan are closing their beaches
In Brittany, the mayors of Damgan, Erdeven, Billiers and La Trinité-sur-Mer have asked the prefecture to close their beaches, pointing to unacceptable behavior. Reverse all! The inhabitants of four towns in Morbihan will hardly have had time to take advantage of the waterfront walks. Only a few days after their reopening, with a prefectoral dispensation, the beaches of Erdeven, Damgan de Billiers and La Trinité-sur-Mer have been closed again since Wednesday evening.
With the deconfinement, there is a crowd on the greenways. On that of Norman Switzerland, from Caen to the south of Calvados, the attendance is accompanied by sometimes dangerous attitudes.
“Pay attention to the little girl! "At a crossroads, two cyclists with a toned pedal stroke graze a family posted in front of a sign for a short break. A rather banal scene on the green way of Norman Switzerland, and which however does not have place to be, in particular at this place, a few kilometers south of Caen.
"The speed is limited to 20 km / h," recalls André-Pierre Hodierne, administrator of the Dérailleurs Caen, a bicycle touring association. "The greenway is a space of freedom, and we forget a bit about living together," notes this passionate, regular user of the route. The speed limit is effective over the 13 km from Caen, "where traffic is highest," says Elie Daguet, head of the environment department of the Department of Calvados. About 386,000 people use the track on its northern part, the closest to the metropolitan area, each year.

At the foot of an old mining installation, lulled by the aquatic noise of a spillway below, several walkers take a break in the sun on this Sunday, May 24. The greenway did not close during confinement, but now everyone can move freely again, and users are reconnecting with old findings. Murielle, with her two daughters, testifies: “There are not very nice cyclists. They drive fast, and they get in the way. These behaviors are the only downside of the greenway. "" We see people in competition mode on the track "
Unfriendly attitudes on the one hand, and dangerous on the other. "We see people in competition mode on the track, when it is first a walk," laments Mickaël. One day, on the one that links Caen to Ouistreham, I witnessed a fatal accident. This struck me. You really have to be careful. "This father leads a family platoon of 8 people, governed by elementary rules of prudence:" The first of the rope warns the others if he sees a danger. You have to use common sense. Shocks are rare, however. According to the Department, there are more accidents caused by road trips.
André-Pierre Hodierne, of Derailers, points to other clumsy behaviors: "You have children who learn to cycle on the track. They zigzag a lot, on busy passages. Parents are not very vigilant. Pedestrians, too, are not free from reproach. “They sometimes occupy the entire width of the track. It's never bad, but it can be a problem, especially if a racing squad arrives quickly. »
