The bars are closing and people are returning. People running to catch a crowded subway, then, a few minutes later, empty or almost empty trains. This is the scenario glimpsed on Saturday, on the first evening of the curfew introduced in Ile-de-France. A wobbly operation that deserves to be rebalanced, according to users of public transport in the region.

The number of kilometers of traffic jams reached an exceptional level in Ile-de-France this Thursday, on the eve of reconfinement.

The figure, which continues to grow, is a record for this time of year, says Le Parisien . According to the daily, in 2018, at most, on the last Thursday of the All Saints holidays, there were barely 83 km of traffic jams at noon.
