Hello to all, Its hardly surprising there are so many accidents on French roads. We have lived in the Lot now for seven years. As an ex Police Traffic Officer the standard of driving by the locals is beyond belief, the state of some of the vehicles has to be seen to be believed, most of the drivers need their eyes tested as it is painfully obvious at times they cannot see past the bonnet probably due to the cost of spectacles in France. The Control Technique is an absolute joke. If the Gendarmerie spent more time examining vehicles and testing drivers eyesight instead of persecuting speeders the roads would be a LOT safer. Speed in itself is not dangerous, the danger is the person behind the wheel.
