Tips on driving in France

Jump to last reply

I've collected some tips on driving in France from some of my past Fodor's trip reports, and posted them, with some illustrative photos, on my web page. I discuss some signage conventions, ronds-points (roundabouts/traffic circles), horodateurs (paying for parking), and other issues that might be of interest to a tourist (particularly an American) driving in France. You can see the page at:

These issues were brought to mind by our most recent trip, reported on (in rather excessive detail, but with some photos) at:

Most of my other past Fodor's Trip Reports are linked to from:
