Angers city wants to tackle the night unrest in downtown

Enough is enough. Angers townhall has decided to act against the night bustle generated by some bars regarding the alcoholization of their customers and the fact these last stand during the evenings on the pavements and the streets. A letter to six of these bars wil be sent by the mayor of Angers urging them  to reconsider their part in the night nuisances. "This letter is part of the series of measures introduced to regulate the angevins evenings, above all those of the wednesdays, thursdays and fridays night", said Jean-Pierre Chauvelon, in charge of security issues at townhall.

 But cityhall doesn't want to dedicate itself to a policy only repressive. So Rose-Marie Veron is in charge of a more preventive aspect of the municipal policy through the sensibilization of students to the dangers of alcoholization, drugs and risky sexuality. If some of these students are guilty of inappropriate behaviour, they could be sanctioned. This is of course useful but it will not be sufficient if drug dealers are not neutralized. The city mentions in a press release that "hundreds of youngs squatter pavements, block the traffic, make noise and commit damages". If an appeal has been expressed, the city is showing his muscles.
