Too Old to Drive in Paris?

Jump to last reply

A couple of decades back, in our 20's, my newly betrothed and I rented a car in
Paris and proceeded to drive nearly all of France with it. It was a wonderful
time and something I'd like to -- at least partially -- replicate during our trip next
month. We arrive in Paris 4/21 and spend one night. We're scheduled to then leave to visit family in the Alsace region for a few days. I'd love to do this drive. My husband claims he "is too old" to drive in France; particularly Paris. Unless there is a new law in France that bans 40-somethings from the road, I fear my husband is just not quite as daring as he used to be. In that case, I'll do the driving. Am I wrong to think this is perfectly feasible? Or should I give in and take the train with the old man?

Appreciate any thoughts-suggestions.
