Driving Tips and Rules in France
When driving your rental car in France it is important to remember that the rules of the road may differ to those of your own country - especially for those coming from the UK.

✔ Carry two NF certified breathalysers, as an unused one must be produced upon request
✔ Reflective jackets and a warning triangle are also compulsory
✔ You must not carry any device capable of detecting speed cameras; this feature and warning system on SAT NAVs must be disabled
