Mike & Linda Jones warn us of the ‘trap’ awaiting travellers into France from Spain who are not aware of the change in speed limits.
“Last year L’Independent published an article detailing the number of “contraventions ” each of the twelve fixed cameras in the PO had registered
The highest number of ” flashes ” were recorded by the camera on the A9 autoroute (direction Spain to Perpignan) which is situated about 2km from the frontier.
