May30,2024

Emmanuel Macron is clearly not the most popular President of the French Republic cié of History, and the same goes for its Government. So, when the Ministry of the Interior completely misses a message of road prevention, Internet users ignore it. read.

## a new prevention message from the government

It is not always easy to master your communication, and this is even more true on social networks. Even a brand like Burger King, known to be good at this, cannot always avoid controversies. So when it comes to official messages published by the Government, it's even more complicated. And this Tuesday, May 28, it was the Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Territories which paid the price.

It published ;, on social networks, a prevention message for safety road. Addressed to workers, the message in question encourages road users to take action. do not drive too fast, emphasizing that driving a little faster does not save much time on a journey. Until then, nothing is normal. But the problem is that “the calculations are not good, Kevin”, as a great philosopher would say.

## a vague calculation and angry Internet users on x

In its prevention message, the Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Territories affirms“that by increasing your speed by 10 km/h on a journey of 30 kilometers , we only gain 30 seconds.”Problem, no base speed is given. Now, if you are encouraged to do so; To be careful on the road, we must also be intellectually honest: depending on the speed at which we are driving. At the starting point, increasing your speed by 10 km/h can actually improve your speed. save a significant amount of time.Concretely, the slower you drive, the more time saved. will be proportionally high. In the example given; here, ride at speed; 40 km/h instead of 30 km/h would save 15 minutes on a 30 kilometer journey!

But?!
I'm having someone do the exercise. my 3rd grade students.

Uh…
Yes this statement is true if you already drive at a high speed. &àgrave; almost 185 km/h…
I think the danger is there; well before reaching this speed!!!

As reported by our colleagues atNumérama and as you have noticed, Internet users have been many to choose from note the trick – or the error – with humor or annoyance, so thata note from the community appeared,before mysteriously disappearing.

As indicated; above, so that the calculation indicated by the Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Territories is correct, motorists should travel at the correct speed. a base speed of 184 km/h. A priori, it is illegal. Shared computing in this post aimed at raising awareness therefore does not apply to no real situation, which completely ridicules the basic message, however important.
