On our Christmas trip to our house in Brittany I saw a French police car with a speed camera sticking out of it's window!
Fortunately I was in the car :-) Next time I may not be so lucky.
This is the first speed camera I've ever seen in France. But, they are on the increase. I read an article in a French magazine that said the French police were to purchase a thousand static cameras over the next two years. 'Oh no' I thought, 'the disease is spreading across the channel'. Fingers crossed that my translation was wrong.
If it is true my only hope is that since France is a big country, if they start around Paris, hopefully they won't have any left to put up in Brittany ;-)
