      Obviously Paddy, you have never driven “on the wrong side of the road” as it were in a foreign country.

    Will they come back and find their car broken in to, and another sign on ‘Sorry – it’s our ethnic rights boss’

    I got my driving license in France last year, and did my first few cautious months of driving in rural France before moving home. I wanted at the time to get a sign made in French “I’m a New Driver. I’m Apologise for Observing the Rules of the Road”
    I was so often tailgated and beeped for driving too slow, when keeping just at the max of the legal limit, or slowing down to enter a round-a-bout instead of barging through it a speed, etc.

      Why would you slow down to enter a roundabout if its clear to enter it, you wouldn’t pass your test if you did that in the UK
      I s’pose you don’t accelerate in the accelarating lane when joining a motorway and then sit in the middle lane cruising at 100 kmph.

        You take your life in your hands driving onto a roundabout in France; they changed the rules about right of way a few years back yet and the French, as usual, still haven’t got the hang of it;

    When driving on the continent, never indicate. If you do, they know you’re a tourist.
