In The Times today:

Up to 65 per cent of roadside speed cameras in France have been vandalised in a revolt against speed limits that is closely tied to the yellow vest protest movement.

Must be a side role for them as that is not their agenda, that's usually intimidation.

On this occasion I applaud their work

In early december diesel at the supermarkets was only a few cents cheaper than in the UK. Diesel at the Motorway services are more expensive than the UK!

Avoid Euro tunnel/Calais on saturdays, they like to block junction 42 on the A16.

Thanks Ali. I always avoid the autoroute services, too many Brits miss out on a quality lunch and cheap fuel away from the autoroute.
I've never been chased for speed camera fines from France, but got caught in Italy last year for driving in a historic zone in a tiny village, six months after it happened

And look at what we have in the UK - https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/...meras-15656900 i thought it would be classed as invasion of privacy if they monitor inside a private vehicle?
