France Bleu Périgord reports that many corners of the Dordogne do not have a full address of a number and a name for the road, with the conseil départemental saying they will help local mairies with the project.
Besides the emergency services and la poste requiring addresses, more and more services such as internet access and even apps on mobile phones require detailed locations to work correctly.
