80 Km/h
« on: July 24, 2018, 22:11:59 »
The reduction of the speed limit from 90 km/h to 80 km/h on two-way roads without central separator is applied from 1 July 2018 in France.

be careful you can find 90 panel , you can see this one when you arrive in France



But it is not true, you have to ride everywhere 80 km/h instead of 90...  :-[

So be careful  VCIF_ok

This reminds me about the well-known super-expensive speeding fines in Norway.
I ride calm and slow until I cross the Swedish border.
VROOOM... - low fines and no points   ;D ;D
See you in Frederiksværk :-)

Most countryroads in The Netherlands are down from 80 to 60 these days. So no reasons to complain about the French new rules. I'll do my touring in Germany... 100kmh on countryroads 👍🏼😁

I never stick to the 90, so I can't see me sticking to the 80. Within reason of course.

No complaining, just informing; perhaps one of these days, have to ride across France again  ...  VCIF_ok

In July automatic radars have took twice as much pictures as July 2017...  8) security is a nice idea  ;D

Just back from a week in France and didn't change my riding style or speed regardlessof the new limits. All the years I've been going and still haven't met a Gendarme. Long may it last.
