Roadsign in France (1 Viewer)

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

Unless of course there is a higher speed limit sign posted after the place name road sign.:winky:

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.

Priority to the right - now there's a silly traffic law!! In a town not far from here, this rule governs a series of roundabouts, meaning that traffic ON the roundabout has to give way to that which is JOINING the roundabout, leading to frequent grid-lock:RollEyes::roflmto: Then, just for fun, some people ignore the rule, and use them as normal roundabouts ... SCARY!!
