Anyone going to France this summer should be aware that the speed limit on single carriageway roads will be reduced from 56mph
( 90kph ) to 50mph ( 80kph ) from the first of July. I find that when I go to France that my front number plate tends to come loose, and fall off as I get off the ferry. Of course, they're the sort of roads we like to use. This might just help with the forward facing cameras.

three wheelers in France do NOT need to have a front numberplate as they come under motorbike rules as Tricycles a Moteur here..so just remove it
and a CD disc by the rear plate just happens to upset the flash and the foto is unfortunately blurrreeeddd.
if stopped, all they have asked in the past is who made it and how fast does it go !!!and they stop traffic for you to get away...

Nothing upset a flash or a photo these days, these are legends.
And now 95% of road camera take by the rear, to not forgot the motorcycle.

Once I was flash with mine in France (2011), so I asked the photo, to see.
I received 4xA4 pictures, on one you see the flash, on 3 there were no flash.

They are not stupid enough to take only one picture, digital photos are virtually free man!
