To make sure that you travel in safety, remember that French traffic laws are not necessarily the same as in your own country, particularly as far as speed limits are concerned. If you commit a traffic offence, you are liable to expose yourself to sanctions including fine or vehicle withheld. Please check traffic laws before travelling: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/road_safety/going_abroad/france/index_en.htm
In this leaflet, you will find the speed limits and the penalties applied should they be exceeded.
