Me too. I don't understand why the A6/A7 route remains so busy. I stopped using it since they finished the missing link to Montpellier...

This map is outdated: the old N10 stretch between Bordeaux-Bayonne has been upgraded to A63 which is tolled now. Also some new or extended autoroutes are missing which are tolled too.

I know this map is outdated, but I wasn't asked about the stretch you mentioned above. I was asked specifically about A20 which is why I used this map. And as far as I know, some of my French friends still use that almost 300-km free stretch.
It's also a good option if you want to go to Bordeaux: you exit the A20 in Limoges and you go to Angoulême, where you catch the good old N10.

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

Wish I could get a steak-frites or moules marinière without going out....

I do have frozen shepherd's pie in the freezer (good place for it....) But, well, English food....

I'm playing with a 2014 Michelin Benelux/North of France road atlas that I ordered some time ago but hadn't had a chance to look through yet...

There appears to be an autoroute under construction to connect the A34 south of Charleville-Mézières with the (future) E420 at the Belgian border.

Just a point of information. And does anyone know the number?

That very same video has been posted by Nexis about 8 or 9 posts above yours on this same page.

Seeing Grobin map the best region to drive is Bretagne. All motorways have no tolls.

Well, perhaps France should have more free toll motorways, but in last years more tolls have added. It is a expensive country to drive.

A43, Lyon

A video of A43 into Lyon. The motorway is quite spacious.

Between those tolls, all the radars everywhere and all the parking problems, yes - it is very expensive.

About Brittany: it is due to historical reasons that there are no tolls in that region.
However, I wouldn't say it's a nice region to drive. Each new radar is tested there before anywhere in France. It is probably the region in France with most radar controls. So don't forget to keep your nose into your speedometer
