That's huge. There are countries that don't have 700 km worth of motorway (like) roads...

The last time I used a car in morning rush hour (it was in May), it took me over 2 hours to go from CDG airport to my home in Montrouge. (44 km)
(About 20 km/h in average speed and most of the trip was in freeways).

yup. In Paris intra muros the average speed is around 10 kmh even without jams.

Pheripherique a few months ago, northbound from A6 to A3, with an amazing flow of traffic at rush hour...

you never know what to expect at peripherique. sometimes it will be fluid during rush hour, sometimes you will get stuck at 10 p.m. btw those photos on champs elysées were taken at 1.30 a.m., and you can see there's a light traffic jam on some of them.

Yes, I`m on that peripherique in the middle of the night sometimes with situations getting dangerously close to stuck in traffic. Especially when they close the A3 AND the peripherique on the west side, which happens often...

Any chances of the N104 completion in the near future? Is the A86 so congested every day ?

A/N104 would've been better if it was some sort of London Orbital-like road. Nowadays there are many 2x2 sectors and many TOTSO's along N104, sort of making it less effective as a good bypass. Most traffic only uses short sections of N104.

A86 is pretty much congested every day, yes. N104 is still the best alternative, despite the ongoing roadworks on the Orly side of Paris...

I want to film most motorways and expressways in Paris some day. I assume the best time to do that is in August when all Parisians are in southern France.

I'd stick with a nice and early Sunday morning outside a holiday season. My favorite time to drive in the Paris area...

I think you've just described the best time to drive in to any city.

but Paris particurally, if you don't want to film at night...

Paris is Europe's most congested city. and mostly due to city socialistic politics.
