New to it all
With all the posts re tickets, are the French clawing in as much money as possible prior to Brexit?? They must be working overtime to scan the camera pics for British number plates.

Let's try the letters again as you can see it was last September. I am not disputing I just want to know locations. Although I think it could be the Tunnel at Saint Marie Aux Mines. And the other one aproaching it northbound on way home.

Its starting to look like with so many Funsters getting belated fines through the post, that unfortunately unless you are extremely vigilant at all times & points of your journey, we will have to build these fines into the overall cost of our holiday :eek:
It might end up being more cost effective to pay the auto route tolls, as at least the speeds remain more constant.:(
Its difficult almost impossible to prove whether we as UK drivers are being singled out,but I hope not.

Who knows I think I read that the french reduced there speed limits last year so maybe thats why we get caught out. To be fair I am a bit heavy footed at times. So 90 Euros on last years holiday is fine by me and in the grand scheme of things is a small price to pay for all the times I havnt been caught and a lesson to pay more attention to my speed at all times.

Now then I really wanna find my locations on google maps but its just not making sense any idea please ?

looks like they use a guide speed also i.e, actual speed 83kph used speed 78kph speed limit 70kph.

although that does not ap[ear to have the same %ages as the first fine....

Have all these people that have received speeding fines from France signed up to the The French clean air stickers - called Crit'Air vignettes?

Nice one thanks a lot but i did some digging and I decided its in tunnel and my Revolut card payment almost confirms this as minutes after paying I got caught.
Just googled that tunnel its posted at a speed limit 70KPH which converted to MPH is 43.496 MPH which is pretty slow going, they not only need speed cameras in that length of Tunnel,surely they need alertness devices also, cos many would fall asleep at the wheel as its nearly 4.5 miles long.(I know there are longer tunnels, but just sayin)
Now another mission, how many accidents in last year I wonder?
Along with how much money raised on fines also.
Now I have registered and got my Crit Air Sticker, does that make it easier for them to find me over someone that hasn't registered I wonder:eek:
