    Many people are unaware that a place-name road sign, when bordered with a red line, indicates the start of a 50kph speed limit. There is frequently NO OTHER SIGN of the reduced speed limit!

    So, drivers in France beware - red line round place name = 50 speed limit (that's 30mph).

    When you see the sign with the placename crossed-through, bordered in grey, this means back to the national speed limit of 90kph, unless otherwise stated.

    Yes, every small village in France, that has a sign, is covered by that.
    On the spot fines as well, they wil escort you to a cash machine if you haven't got the money or take your licence off you and then you cant drive.
    Take care

    Is it me, or are the pics not working, Jim?

    Yes, of course if there is an "over-riding" speedlimit sign, either higher or indeed lower (and the French do like their 30kph in town centres!), that applies.

    Top marks Don :winky:

    On roads with this sign, drivers have priority to when going across intersections or turning onto another road. There is also a version with a line through it, meaning “this road does not have priority”, that is cars coming from the right onto this road have the priority.
