Driving in France

Driving in France is not really different from driving in most other countries. French drivers may be a bit more law-abiding than drivers from southern Europe, and a bit less than drivers from northern Europe, but overall, there is no big difference. Except of course for you people coming from the UK (or Australia etc), as the driving usually takes place on the right part of the road!

Why you should be careful

It all comes to where the car is registered. If you drive a french registered car, yours, a friend's, a lender's, the owner will receive a fine, and probably get back to you.

Still not concerned? Not so sure. As of now, only two country (Luxembourg and Switzerland) have agreed to share their car registration database with France. But as European police forces cooperate more and more, new countries are likely to join forces in that field. Besides, if arrested for routine checks by the police or gendarmerie, previous recorded infractions might turn up on the officers' computer. What's more, overspeeding by more than 50km/h is considered a big deal, and will bring you trouble anyway.
