    Hi everybody!

    Well i'm very sorry , i had to start another thread , i just can't remember on which one was the question about lorries on motorways in France. :Doh:

    So lorries from 7,5 metrics tonnes are not allowed on french motorways from saturdays 22.00 up to sundays 22.00 . Except moving vans and refrigerated lorries.

    So, it's a bit better to drive your motorhome when lorries are off .

    Have a nice time travelling on french motorways:winky:

    no offence to the many safe french lady drivers but its better to travel when the stupid ones are off.:Angry:

    while following a french HGV, in france, a stupid woman overtook us both then swerved across infront of the HGV to the 'hard shoulder' as her 'friend' had stopped.:Eeek:

    HGV driver hit the brakes hard, started to jackknife........i slammed on and filled my pants trying to guess which way he'd go! luckily he got it under control.

    if i could have stopped i would have made sure she understood the english for 'stupid bitch' as , im sure, the HGV driver would have.
