    Whilst in Zahora a few years ago Bryan ( ex admin assistant on here ) got pulled using an A frame in Spain.
    He was fines and forced to unhook there and then.. Fortunately Suzy could drive and had to do so for the next few hundred miles

    No idea about France but lost count of the people who have been nicked in Spain and who we have seen parked at roadside with an a frame and with plod in attendance

    It should be 50/50..

    50% you will get away with it and no issues.
    50% you get stopped and fined and made to unhook..

    I've voted for the other twenty. But probably should vote for both as I have 20/20 vision* with glasses.

    *Which means I have average eyesight as you all know. 40/20 is much better. :)

    Yes that is exactly what they make you do. But if caught a second time the car will be impounded.

    They impound the car..? I thought it was a 600 euro fine?.. On the other hand, how do they know that you've already been pulled..
