I dont mean to throw more garlic scented oil onto this fire but here in France, during December, if you were done for speeding you had a chance of being "let off".
Reson being that the government used to organise a sort of lottery with a selected hundred or so speeding fines being dismised. It used to be called "La Grace" but unfortunately Mr Sarkozy put an end to it....Bas**rd
At least one thing is good here and that's that wherever a speed camera is installed, there will DEFINATELY be a largish warning sign exactly 500meters beforehand.
You have to keep a good eye out for the signs though cus the fecking camera's can be pretty discrete.
