Rented a car two weeks ago for a road trip from Grenoble to Mt. St. Michel and back. Traveled seven days on secondary roads, stayed within the speed that most cars were going. Upon return home in NY found three speeding tickets from France in the mail. Radar guns. Speed was clocked 9, 15 and 28 kilometers over the limit, totaling 225 euros (if paid on time).
Just for your info, should you consider renting a car. I'm wondering whether in France the license plates indicate, as they do here, that the car is a rental. Also wondering whether the rental cars are specially targeted by traffic police. Any ideas, comments, suggestions? (Other than drive slower next time.) Merci!
