In Bretagne no Autoroutes only freeways 2x2 lanes (Nationales and Départementales).

From these 2x2 lanes i can recomended to you some good spots...
-a good view on Quimper in the direction of Brest ; going to St-Malo from Rennes a 1km long view, on and along Rance river ; over the Rance River Valley on the road Dol-de-Bretagne->Dinan ; The Rance River Dam between St-Malo and Dinard ; a cool spot on Rennes coming from Nantes ; the best arrival view on Brest by road is coming from Quimper, not from Rennes

-the must see : this one Morlaix from nationale during 3 seconds ;

One of the best road on those i've drove not far from Brest, If you have time, try this 2x1 lanes D791 (=>http://www.panoramio.com/map/#lt=48....&k=2&a=1&tab=1)

The largest projects are the A19 Courteney - Orléans and the A65 Langgon - Pau I think.

I have noticed that in French motorways some of those has green road-plates or some other like A75 blue road-plates. What the difference in France about that, in the lanes?

Blue sign means you'll be driving on a motorway to reach the destination.
Green means you will exit the motorway to a major city or a national road. Some national roads are almost up to motorway standards, while some are regular roads.
White means an immediate exit to a destination.

Here for instance, you have the A86 motorway to Nanterre, or an immediate exit (#10) to the city of Aubervilliers.

In Sweden it's actually the other way around. Green for motorways and blue for national roads. But we also have white for local destinations.

"Switzerland is "open" like the other members of E.U."

Switzerland is part of the Schengen (sp?) agreement. It is not a member of the EU. The UK and the Republic of Ireland are the opposite - EU members that aren't part of Schengen.

From a Swiss I heard it's free movement of people, but not yet of goods, so theoretically your vehicle can still be searched without having to weave with a passport. It's basically not that different from before the Schengen adoption, there weren't that many checks on the border. They usually pick suspicious vehicles, or those with Eastern European tags.

No, it's just motorway entrance and exit.

The border between France and the canton of Geneva is in a plain.
