At time location one of our cars, you must respect the highway code.
Speeding for lack of attention and you have been flashed by a mobile or fixed speed camera? A blown red light or a slipped stop? We remind you of the fines to which you can be fined.
Small reminder of the law: speeding less than 20 km / h is punished with a fine of 68 euros in town and 135 euros on roads and motorways (if neither increased, reduced), in addition to 1 withdrawal point on your driver's license. Beyond 20 km / h, you risk a 135 euros fine (if neither increased nor reduced) and 2 to 6 license points less. From 40 km / h above the authorized speed, an immediate suspension of the driving license is added to your fine.
Just like with your own vehicle, the fine for speeding with a rental car is sent directly to the home of the person who signed the rental agreement.
Compliance with the highway code applies to all vehicles (utility or private). The road law is the same as with your personal, rental or replacement car. Respecting the rules is essential for your good behavior. An infringement will often be sanctioned by a fine or a withdrawal of point.
