Driving Tips In France
Be aware that French drivers drive more aggressively and exceed speed limits. Be prepared to drive more defensively. Rush hour in Paris and major towns are situated around hours of going to and from work (7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m). Fridays can be more congested due to people leaving the city. Pay attention to the road as the lane marking and road signs are not as clear as in North America. Are you travelling with children? Most motorway service stations have 'baby corners' with changing facilities and high chairs.

Road Tips for France
Always carry your driving licence, vehicle registration document (V5), and certificate of motor insurance. If your licence does not incorporate a photograph ensure you carry your passport to validate the licence. If the vehicle is not registered in your name, carry a letter from the registered owner giving you permission to drive.
