Re: Driving in France - Legal Stuff
Having lived in France for 3 years now, a couple of minor items of advice. 1. Be very careful on roundabouts, the french have a habit of still giving way to traffic entering a roundabout even though the law changed many years ago, also they have a habit of going all away around the roundabout in the outside lane, so be very careful exiting a roundabout. 2. get yourself familiar with the signs indicating you must give way from the right. That means you can be on a main road and you have to stop and let the guy turning right onto your main road from a little side road enter, otherwise if you dont and he hits you its your fault 100%. Just be aware and careful. 2 types of signs A black cross with the words "priorite a droite", 2nd type is for zones and I cant quite remember but its similar to a no stoping sign and a national speed limit sign. Have fun. I think the law in France is 1 hi-vis jacket minimum, but in Italy it is 1 per person... Dont want to get into a debate, I have 1 in my car.
