French speed updates... Dec 2020..

Post by Tramp » Wed Dec 30, 2020 2:56 pm

Okay folks as I've been driving around France this Christmas of 2020 I've noticed that a lot of the new now old 80kmh restrictions have been changed back to 90kmh on some routes mainly the route national but some great back roads too..

The French government has handed control of local speed restriction back to hh local municipal councils... So on roads they deem not to be dangerous have gone back upto 90kmh with new blingy signs..

It makes the sat nav speed bings impractical now... Although poor froogy dosent understand the 80 or 90 kmh thing....

So for them traveling next year 2021 it's some good news.... But be very careful as lots of new long distance speed cameras have appeared...

I'm in France over the new year.... Nowt much has changed guys after 4 trips this year.... Not looking forward to getting back in lockdown blighty although I'm in tier 3.. And really don't give a freddy...

Yep, no speed limits really apply round us, especially in the chasse season :o
