Not that bad. But we beat it with a road that peaks at 3400 meters .

I was there also a week ago, very nice!

A75 from Millau to A75-A750 interchange, with Millau viaduc in the beginning and the spectacular part nearby Lodčve (start at 7:40).

Those are new "Routes Métropolitaines", introduced in March 2012. Their prefix is "M".

My first thought was also that Monaco is maintaining that road now.

A new Direction des Routes Metropolitaines is founded: http://video.nice.fr/details_video_e...ce-cote-d-azur

The percentage of French cars in France is still remarkable. Has this really to do with the great French national pride?

No. A lot of German cars in Germany, a lot of USA cars in the USA etc etc. I think it's quite normal.

France is one of Europe's largest carmakers, so I guess it's normal. You'll also see a lot of locally built cars in Spain, Italy, Germany or the UK.

I did a little digging on French Wikipedia, routes.wikia.com and the French roads forum. This appears to be limited to the Nice area for now, and some people on the forum aren't sure the new M designation and blue markers are really legal.

Just f.y.i....

Yes. And helping domestic economy - protectionism. The same goes for Germany, Italy, Austria, Spain,...

Austrian cars??

[subject change]----------

Talking of obscure route-number classes, I noticed quite a few C roads on exit signs on one of Chris's recent photo sets. I don't think I've ever seen them before. (But on the other hand, a lot of exit signs don't have route numbers at all, just destinations.) If you get off the autoroutes/voies express in other parts of the country, do you see them marked, or is that an oddity of Brittany?

And I would think any public road (village streets, for example) that's not part of a "higher" class of road like national or departmental would be a municipal road, so in municipalities where C roads are marked as such, are they just a subset of the municipal road network - main roads leading to other villages get numbers but the side streets don't - or am I missing something?

yes - for Austria, only national pride, no helping domestic economy which proves my first point, that people don't buy domestic cars just because they are local, but mainly for patriotic reasons.

You've lost me.

I was wondering what brand of cars is Austrian. And how does buying Austrian-made cars not help the Austrian economy? And what's the difference between buying domestic cars "because they're local" and buying "for patriotic reasons"?
