On the website, presenting itself as "The largest database in the French-speaking world on paranormal testimonies", a testimony received by email was published on an unspecified date, from "Mike Verdier", written on August 23, 2014.

The witness said that in Zuztendorf, near Pfaffenhoffen, there are roads where nothing happens during the day when he drives there, but when he drives there around 2 a.m., 2:30 a.m., or even midnight, "Things are happening that I can't explain: I have chills, I'm anxious and the car shows a battery problem and it's as if the car would have small voltage drops in the electronics."

I have the chills, I anguish and car shows a battery problem, and its as if the car would have small voltage drops in its electronics.

I do not know at all what to think about it but it is very rare that I meet other drivers by these winding and all dark roads.



I do not know what to think of this either. If it really does happen there, in any case, I do not see a connection with the UFO question.


Probably not UFO-related.
