Driving in France- Difference #3 – On the AutoRoute, Don’t cruise in the left lane!

Published on January 6, 2017 by AHIF Administrator

If you want to get somewhere in a hurry, you’ll be taking the autoroute. The big, ultramodern, smooth as silk, beautifully maintained high speedtoll road. Big Difference #3 comes as a shock to many Americans: you can’t dawdle in the left lane.The right and center lanes are for traffic and trucks, the left lane is for passing. Only. If you’re not keeping up in the left lane, expect drivers to come right up on your bumper and flash their lights. Don’t take it personally, that’s just how it’s done. Move over. You will observe drivers passing traffic at over 150 KPH*, then pulling back into the right or center lane to make way for somebody who’s going even faster. And on the A8 for instance there probably will be.

* Note: not condoned by us. In fact, getting caught speeding in France is very expensive.
