Am driving from Switzerland back to the UK on Friday, and have been looking forwards to the smooth, fast empty French motorways. It was always possible to drive at 100mph+ without any problems. I heard yesterday (and verified it through various web-sites) that the French police are now rigorously enforcing speed limits. Drivers caught doing more than 25km/h over the limit are liable to have their licenses immediately confiscated and a 1 month French driving ban imposed, whilst drivers exceeding the limit by more than 50km/h may have their vehicles confiscated. Just thought I would point this out in case anybody was planning to let rip on the French Autoroutes this summer. Mark.
