Tips for driving in France

Number Plates

A driving holiday to France is a wonderful way to spend a week or two as a family or a couple. Millions of people from Britain drive to France each year. It’s a great way to get holiday abroad without spending a fortune on flights. When you’re driving abroad, it’s always a good idea to read up on the rules of the road as there are always differences, and France is no exception. If your car has refused to travel further and you’re stuck in the center of the highway, you will need towing service dublin professionals to rescue you.

Here are some points to bear in mind on your journey…

Children under 10 years of age are not allowed to sit in the front seat.

It is illegal to have a speed camera detector in your car, even if it is not in use, so don’t leave yours in the boot when you travel.

The legal amount of alcohol in the blood stream is lower than that in the UK. 50Mg / 100ml rather than 80mg here.

You are legally required to have a breathalyser in your vehicle, it must also be in date, so if you’ve got one from your last trip, check the expiry date. It’s a good idea to take two. If you’re unlucky enough to be stopped twice, you wouldn’t have one to produce the second time you were stopped!
