French Road Trip – Sticking to the rules

More French observations…
There have been many scare stories recently of how the new traffic laws are allowing French police to target British motorists. A Post-Brexit scare perhaps?
In 1250 miles we saw probably only 4 or 5 police cars, all en route to, or at, accidents.
In the many villages there are lots of Speed warning signs, sometimes backed up by cameras but many fewer cameras than in the UK.
However, unlike most here, the French cameras are generally unmarked, although there are always prior warning signs.
Some of the cameras look like leftovers from the Maginot Line, low, grey, squat and would stop a tank!!
Keep near the limits, ensure you have the legal requirements on board, don’t drink and drive and ‘les flics’ won’t trouble you.
