Speed trap cars in France

Morning all I think I was nabbed by one of these speed trap cars it was a peugeot 508 I think black and the tell tale signs were it suddenly latched on to me and varied speed as I did and there were two pale blue leds in front grill when I slowed to 120 it sat for a minute then was off mind you on the bright side Calais to Sainte Foy La Grande in just over 7 and a half hours is good going for the old girl at 220k plus Thumbs Up Thumbs Up and petrol is cheaper here

Hey sandy was it black with blacked out rear windows? You'll probably find it's a police special operations vehicle. I see them all the time in them when I'm in France and also in VW T6's and ford galaxy's, all black.
I was swapping trailers once with another driver in a layby about 2am in the morning, when one of them turned up and 2 balaclava clad sub machine gun armed officers got out.
While we trailer swapping, we had kettle on for a coffee, made them one too, had a chat and then left. Never had a problem with French police or douanes, always polite and friendly. If you've done anything wrong, speeding, breaking weekend driving ban etc etc, just pay the fine and on your way.

I wouldn't worry about getting a speeding ticket through the post sandy. The French no longer have access to the dvla database so they can't find you. I get flashed by at least 4 cameras a day in France when I'm there and also in Germany, i don't hear a thing.

There may not be data sharing, I don’t know, but there is nothing to stop the French blacklisting the reg and then pursing the cash when you are in their country next time. Or the new owner is! Rolling with laughter L405 P400e Autobiography (MY2020)... Silicon Silver / Espresso

Until you pop up on their database when you eventually get physically stopped, get presented with a list of outstanding tickets & begin the long walk home because they have impounded your car !

Friendly yes, nice ...mmm. These "anonimous " radar cars are now everywhere, the only thing you can recognize them by is the fact that round their numberplate you wont find a dealers name. Dealers are affraid for "revenge" by the people.

Don't think to light about "not being found" If they get hold of you in France by your licenceplate or for a regular check they will collect all outstanding ones.
