Driving in France

A warning for those who are coming over to France in their cars.
As from this week, the law has changed for Radar Cameras,

all the Panals warning you about the RADARS have been removed this week, it is also against the law to use any equipment that warns you in advance about Radar cameras, even if you have a GPS system with this installed.

Last year i thought i was driving at 50 while passing a camera, but i got ticket for over a hundred Euros plus three points off my licence as they stated i was doing 54.

This also includes mobile radars.

yikes that sounds like they are really cracking down

here the traffic news people announce on the radio where the police are hiding with their radar cameras...!

I guess they think it encourages you to slow down...

Hi expat badger,
they used to be able to do that over here i would here on the radio where the mobile radars were.
It is the police that are difficult to spot with there cameras, they hide everywhere, saw one once hiding behind a tree.

sneaky, aren't they?

We don't have a lot in the way of trees on our highways (being the Prairies we're all flat and wide open spaces) so they just hide behind their pickup truck!!!
