I need a litte help

Past summer i was caught by a speed trap between Metz and Nancy. I know for sure because i saw the flash in the car mirror (going at 105km/h in zone of 90 km/h).

I have not received the fine, other forum says that the amount is so low that France is not going to send it to spanish authorities, so i will never get it.

I would like to know if France send the fines, or if there is an online register in the trafic authority to see the pending fines for your car (in Spain there is one online register to see it). And when the fines are expired.

I would like not to have a surprise the next time i will came to visit France (this summer) and that a gendarmerie patrol stop me because of the unpayed fine.

Thats what people says to me, don't worry the fine never is going to arrive to you.

but the fine must be in some register in France (associated to the car plates) so if i return to France and a police patrol check my car, i wonder if i can have problems

Don't worry, France doesn't sent a fine if the vehicle caught by the radar comes from an other country.
That was right a few months ago. Today, some european countries have signed with France that if a foreign vehicle is caught, the fine will be send to the owner of the vehicle.
Same thing if a french vehicle is "flashed" in a country with which France has signed an agreement.

Nothing. I was caught several times in Spain by the radar ,and even after a check by spanish authorities (guardia civil, customs), I never was worried.

thanks, i will no worry about it anymore

in anycase, are there an online register to see if you have pending fines?

In Spain is called testra and can be seen by anyone, you only have to search your plate numbers or by Id card

According to these recent articles, the opening date for the bridge over the Oyapock River between France and Brazil has been yet again postponed. The bridge was due to open to traffic in the 1st quarter of 2013, but now it's been pushed back to the 2nd quarter, and possibly even to the end of the year. The Brazilians are apparently incapable of completing the 2 km of road on their side of the bridge to connect the bridge with the Brazilian road network!!

Also, the Brazilians have apparently not built the customs house on their side of the border yet. The federal authorities in Brasilia received no bid following a public tender call for the customs house last October, so they had to issue a second public call for bids. Bids had to be submitted before the end of December, but I don't know if they received any. Chi va piano va sano, as they say in Italy.

Since they never sent you anything it's not "unpaid". I wouldn't worry

Crossing French Guiana from west to east. These pictures were taken only a few days ago by a couple of Brazilian bikers who crossed French Guiana from Suriname to Brazil. If you wanna find out more about their odyssey, it's here: http://osmarb.blogspot.fr/2013/02/a-...s-guianas.html

They have followed the red road on the map:



Surinamese roads between the capital, Paramaribo, and the border of French Guiana:





Arriving at the French border, which is the large Maroni River. No bridge is planned over the river before 2027. Cars, trucks, and motorbikes have to use a ferry-boat called "La Gabrielle".



The shore on the distance is French Guiana. The guy is boarding the ferry-boat in Suriname.



Crossing the mighty Maroni River takes half an hour.



Arriving in French Guiana!



Saint-Laurent du Maroni, the entrance door of French Guiana when you come from Suriname:



Leaving Saint-Laurent du Maroni:



The road to Cayenne:





That's the way!





Narrow bridges not yet up to national standards:



The entrance of a town on the road to Cayenne:



Arriving in the outskirts of Cayenne. The sign says "Bienvenue à Cayenne" ("Welcome to Cayenne"):



Crossing the bridge over the big Cayenne River. The city is on the other side of the river. The bridge is getting old (it was built in the mid-1970s, when French Guiana had considerably less inhabitants than today), and it nearly collapsed in 2009. It had to be closed to traffic and repaired from November 2009 to March 2010. A 2nd bridge over the river is now planned.



A bit of rest at the Novotel in Cayenne:





The Atlantic Ocean is just behind those palm trees:



Touring Cayenne. This is the regional council in the background.



The old colonial city:



City center (Cayenne is rather spread out, with a small and not very pretty city center, and sprawling suburbs were the modern developments take place):





Leaving Cayenne:



Another bridge not yet up to national standards. All these bridges will be replaced with newer larger bridges as the international border over the Oyapock River between France and Brazil is opened to truck traffic.





The road to the Brazilian border, which is 200 km from Cayenne:



Arriving in Saint-Georges de l'Oypaock, near the Brazilian border:



Brazilian border: 6 km! The Brazilian city of Oiapoque is 10 km away.



Arriving at the border checkpoint:





The international bridge over the Oyapock River which is still not open to traffic (see 2 posts above):



So back to Saint-Georges de l'Oypaock were small boats need to be boarded to reach the Brazilian shore:



Boarding a pirogue. The Brazilian shore can be seen on the horizon.





And off to Brazil!



Crossing the bridge... underneath.



Arriving in the Brazilian city of Oiapoque:



Home sweet home, of sort.



Last look at French Guiana across the river. Here we're exactly 306 km (190 miles) from Saint-Laurent du Maroni as the crow flies, and about 450 km (280 miles) by road.

I drove there in September 2012 and this road was numbered D2701. Anybody know, when the A701 was deleted? E60 is gone too, now this E-road goes with A19

Why only in Bretagne there's no A numeration of the motorways (e.g. N12 and N24)? Is it because they are not up to motorway i.e. without sideways?

It's because there are no motorways in Brittany.
