Great news, only time will tell if they find another way of raising taxes, I never thought of them as fines.
Now with the new van I will have to watch the limits even more as it's far to easy to speed in it.
The Tesla forum has a similar thread running and this post from a Brit living in France somewhat amused me. I hope he doesn’t object to me copying it here.
“These headline grabbing articles, of which there also many in France, have had French drivers choking on their baguettes. After all, high speed dangerous driving is their domain and they certainly don't want upstart British drivers upsetting their ego's. The Gendarmerie have tried to calm them by stating they will return to their pre-unilateral agreement method of dealing with les rosbifs by hauling miscreants off to an ATM or impounding their vehicles. There is also an 'urgent' working party underway by both countries to put back in place the old system.
So, be a little careful when you set off on your Cannonball run
I thought about that, a guy i know over the west was told to remove his saltire emblem number plates as they were not legal when he went for an mot a few years ago. I have never used the euro emblem myself on new plates.
Dont you talk, I know someone who had that done with there range rover, lucky for them they had proof it was sitting in Charles Hurst garage over a holiday, over £400 of fines if my mem is correct, took a bit of sorting with police involvement, someone had spotted their wagon on the ramp and got plates made and went of to England on a jolly.
