Was that kilometres or miles per hour? If kilometres, not much leeway.

The actual speed recorded would have been 79 KPH as there is a 5 KPH tolerance allowed.

Think quite a few people will get caught out this year - our friend who lives near le Mans tells me that the police are having a bit of a clampdown, especially on the new 80kph (50mph) rule on single carriageways. She's quite vigilant but often finds an angry Frenchman sitting on her tailgate, having forgotten the new limits!

Not unless plod catches them in the act...unlikely in the extreme these days..UK law requires notification to the registered keeper within 14 days otherwise its no go. Impossible to complete the procedure for a foreign driver within that time scale..thats why you see foreign registered vehicles driving at whatever speed they like...sadly

My nephew lives near Antwerp and has a Belgian registered vehicle.
Recently has had speeding fine from the UK. So it is working, albeit very slowly

That isn't entirely correct,the notice of intended prosecution must be sent to the registered keeper within 14 days,if the registered keeper wasn't the driver if they notify the authorities who the driver was then 14 days doesn't apply similarly for rentals or where the address for the registered keeper is incorrect

I think you'll find the "angry Frenchman" is ignoring the new limits.

Fixed speed cameras in France are fairly rare on rural areas - there are two within a 15 mile radius of where we live - one has been vandalised - like many in rural France since the new limits were introduced last year. There is a website showing locations of all fixed cameras as well, so very easy to find where they are - plus they are very clearly signed.

I have yet to see a mobile police speed trap since we moved here last July.

There are still a significant minority of French drivers who tailgate, overtake cars already doing (or even over) the speed limit - and frighteningly, on double white lines, prior to blind bends etc.

Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they aren't present,they use plain clothes officers and unmarked cars!
The fixed ones may be well signed but the sign could be up to 2K from the camera

Watch your back Longcol mobile speed camera's have been "privatised" they will be in a common or garden hatchback parked anywhere, there are over 400 in France in operation at the moment. I have seen them in the 50kph restrictions near Limoges
