Tips to avoid the worst traffic jam in France?
Simple tip. Two words: AVOID PARIS.
To make it more comprehensive. Avoid Paris and surrounding highways like the plague. You won't get stuck in traffic and will save the local drivers your presence which would contribute to the jams.
Better make a detour than drive through Paris area (not talking about the city itself, talking about the main highways going around the city in circles, periph, A86, A104). If possible, avoid those, except between midnight - 5 in the morning. But you never know, an accident or roadworks, and at 3 in the morning you might find yourself in a jam!
