Cheers. I'll just wait now see how many fines come through the letter box think I did ok most of the time but some of them road signs are a bit confusing.
The only one thing I didn't know about was having a crit'air sticker!!! And we drove into Strasbourg.

Does NL need a different sticker or is France, Germany etc all the same sticker?

Certainly France and Germany have separate stickers, so I imagine each country has its own.

I shall check with my friend in the Netherlands - they would know if such a sticker exists.

I totally bypassed Lille on the way back (although we drove through on the way down) but I'm sure the main motorways that go though are exempt.
Didn't learn about crit air untill half way through holiday. We did buy our pass for Switzerland though.

Glad you enjoyed it. Would't worry to much about the fines as since Brexit no agreement is in place to enforce EU penalties in the UK (and vice versa).

Hopefully then that's the case. Although nuts if completely true.
