    We'll be heading to France soon and for this trip we will be using a few toll motorways. I know I will have to argue that I should be charged as class deux as my Sat dome takes me over 3m. I recall seeing on here a few months ago the French for Satellite Dome but I failed to learn it. Can anyone advise me of the correct vocabulary?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    That's right.

    So you say ( with a heavy French accent) dome satellite sticky up.

    Point upwards while saying it and add merci (y)

    Good luck on that one. I suspect a defence based on the satellite dome not being part of your vehicle might not wash everywhere - but worth a try! :) Perhaps "Un OVNI extraterrestre a atterri sur mon toit" might work? (An alien UFO has landed on my roof)
