Latest News on Speeding

The speed limit was recently lowered from 90 km/h to 80 km/h on departmental roads.

In June the government announced that the decision on whether to keep that speed limit in place would be up to each department.

Last month, Christophe Castaner, the Minister of the Interior, announced that the reduction of the speed from 90 km/h to 80 km/h had saved 206 lives between 1 July 2018 and 1 July 2019.  Despite this, many departments are voting to put the speed limit back to 90 km/h.

So far in Occitanie, the Gard and the Pyrénées-Orientales have definitely decided to keep to the 80 km/h limit.

The Hérault, Aude, Aveyron, Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne, Haute-Garonne, and Gers will raise it back to 90km/h.

Lozère has not yet decided.

Motorway limit is 130 km/hr (a shade over 80 mph) with a reduction to 110 km/hr if it’s raining.

And for the inquisitive . . . Rappelmeans “Remember, you should already be at this speed limit”

But remember ‘Ignorance of the law is never an excuse!’ and if you are driving across France you’ll have to be very knowledgeable . . .
