Speed camera signs to return?

Signs were taken down in 2011 to encourage more responsible driving - but could now be reinstated

SIGNS warning drivers of the presence of speed cameras could be re-erected - two years after they were pulled down in a bid to encourage safer driving.

The French road safety authority, the Conseil National de la Sécurité Routière (CNSR), says the current set-up is confusing - many signs have not been taken down as planned and co-exist alongside the 1,400 new radars pédagogiques, which display a car's speed but do not issue fines.

The CNSR is meeting today and will also discuss the future of the breathalyser law. Interior minister Manuel Valls delayed its implementation for an indefinite period last month. It was due to come into force in March, with a €11 fine for failing to carry a breath test kit.
