    Am I right in thinking the speed limits for our MH 3.7 tons are 50km towns 80km single carriageway and 90km dual carriageway/motorway.

    Well ...ok part of the road laws but ...indeed I doubt they would stop you for that .
    Now of course if you are stopped for some other reason ...and more specifically for over speeding, then they might add it to your cart !!!!
    As long as people are quiet, and not being on a "way to" some low tax town/country , then they should not be stopped for such little things.

    If you know you're going to drive through some sensible zone, like Paris at the moment, then do stick to the law. Don't give them a reason to stop you, because once they are on your case, you'll be checked for everything.


    Amicalement

    I used to have speed stickers, but never saw a French motorhome with them so I took them off. I thought it was just drawing attention to my over 3.5T status which I thought undesirable as many aires are only accessible by less than 3.5t roads, such as the Bergues aire which I often use as handy for the tunnel without being too close.

    I thought about them but, couldn't find any to buy at a reasonable price so 20,000 miles in France and so far pas de problem!

    Most motorhome accessory shops have the round stickers in stock. They seem to be quite visible on 3.5t + vehicles now. I was at a rally last weekend and there were at least six camping cars showing the 110, 90, 80 stickers.
