Speeding fines

Just when I was looking forward to a cleaner driving licence, I have opened the mail delivered in my absence and there are two speeding fines – with points off my licence – for exactly the same spot on the road to St Hippolyte du Fort.

Shucks.  I thought I was being so careful.  I knew the speed limit for this dangerous cross roads was 70kph and that this was controlled by speed cameras.  What I hadn’t appreciated was that the speed cameras were a little way outside the crossroads, tracking speeding in the normal 90kph (straight road, no traffic…) road.

Well at least this shows that my little car will not have any problems on its first outing on a motorway next Friday.
