Hi we were wondering the other day why no Spanish driver ever indicates either coming to a roundabout or whilst on the roundabout,or for that fact anywhere,do they suppose we are mindreaders?



I think it's only legal to signal before leaving a roundabout in Germany, may be the same elsewhere?

As I see Frogman definitely has a great experience in camping/traveling abroad, thanks for useful tips.

I have just read in the CC Magazine that the speed limit around the Paris Paripherique has been reduced from 50mph/80kph to 43mph/70kph. So be warned.

joanshubby - I have just read in the CC Magazine that the speed limit around the Paris Paripherique has been reduced from 50mph/80kph to 43mph/70kph.

The last time I went on the Paripherique we would have been ecstatic to get up to 43mph!

Just would mention for anyone who breaks down on the autoroute in France, your usual recovery insurance CAN'T faciliate recovery, it has to be arranged via an authorised agent (use the SOS phone by the side of the motorway).

However, you CAN claim reimbursement of fees paid (in our recent case, almost 250 euros) from your recovery insurer. Not all policies include this information (ADAC policy doesn't) so prior knowledge does help!

Safe driving, everyone.

Not sure if this has been covered already in this thread, but us Brits are no longer 'immune' from fines/penalty points from fixed speed cameras on the continent. UK, Denmark & Ireland opted to delay the introduction of the new EU directive on cross-border jurisdiction by 2 years, but my understanding is that 2 year period expired in May 2017.

In the past I've been flashed by a few cameras in France, once at considerably over the speed limit near Montpellier (by accident, I might add) and never received any nasty surprises in the post back home. I did worry going back into France in 2013 after 'the Montpellier incident' 2 years prior, thinking I was going to get collared at the first checkpoint but thankfully nothing came of it.

It would be interesting to hear if the rule did indeed change back in May and if any UK drivers have been prosecuted by post. Anybody have any first/second hand experience?
