Just Tyres share important road rules from around the world, so if you are travelling this summer and plan to hire a car, check out these five tips for driving in #France
- Necessary equipment: Remember to drive on the right side of the road, but a lesser known rule is that it’s compulsory for all drivers and motorcyclists to keep an unused and certified breathalyser in their vehicle at all times. It’s useful to carry two just in case one is used, lost or damaged.
- Drinking and driving: If you haven’t travelled to France for a while, you may not be aware that the drink drive limit for new drivers and those who have been driving for less than three years has been tightened and reduced from 0.05%% to 0.02%. This is the same limit as bus and coach drivers in France.
- Travelling with children: Are you travelling with children or friends’ children who are under the age of 18? As the driver, it is your responsibility to make sure they’re all safe and secure in their seats, so children who need to be should be strapped into a car/booster seat and all passengers must have their seat belts fastened at all times whilst driving.
- License: Always remember to carry your valid in-date driver’s license.
- Safety: Always ensure you and your passengers wear seatbelts during your journeys and that you stay as road safe as possible, including checking your tyres before long journeys: For more information on www.justtyres.co.uk
