France is particularly strict in the field of GSM and GPS use behind the wheel. You can not call with your mobile phone when you are stationary along the road, although you can not call hands free with earphones and your phone may not be in your field of view while you are driving.
A radar detector that indicates the exact location of speed cameras and mobile controls, also as an app on your smartphone, is strictly forbidden. These functions must be turned off and information about the locations already on the device must be deleted. The fines can go up to 1,500 euros. Ordinary navigation via a mobile phone is allowed, but your smartphone should be placed in a holder and the screen of the smartphone should not be touched or used during reading to read messages.
It is not mandatory to turn on your dim lights during the day, but it is advised. It is mandatory to turn them on in tunnels. Dip lights during the day are mandatory on the motor. Wearing a helmet and gloves is mandatory and as a glasses wearer you must have spare glasses with you. Li>
