80km/h Maximum Speed on Local Roads
In case you've missed it a two year trial starts tomorrow - 1 July 2018 reducing the maximum speed on local roads from 90km/h to 80km/h (50mph)
The law reduces the speed on all two lane roads without a central reservation.
The speed of 50km/h in towns remains the same.
The aim is to reduce the number of road deaths which have remained stubbornly high in France.
