DrivingSpeed Radars

Over the last few years France has installed about two thousand stationary speed radars. All fixed radars should have a warning sign with the speed limit posted under it, to let you know to slow down. Most are just before the speed radar but there is rumor of a plan to do away with this and just have a general warning sign that an area has radars.

Mobile radars where police set up a speed trap aren’t forewarned. Radars detectors are illegal in France. But devices that work from a position database to warn of the locations of radars are legal and are commonly sold in France.

Many fixed speed radars are often vandalized in France.

There are lots of web sites with maps showing the locations of speed radars in France. There is even one in English.

The video below shows you the radar sign warning and a speed radar.
