...I know that it's a rhetorical question ???? but has anyone else noticed that most French cars havn't apparently been fitted with indicators?(the little flashing lights for turning left and right.).
If you are waiting to enter a roundabout the guy coming round it never bothers to tell you that he's turning off....you just wait......and cringe.I've demonstrated my dissatisfaction with 1) a finger up 2) a shrug of the shoulders "à la francaise', 3)grimaces, 4)arm waving etc etc...no reaction.Most French drivers in fact don't really understand roundabouts. The 20 % who do (apparently.).(sorry "repetition') have indicators don't know how to use them...they approach a roundabout and kindly indicate 'left' (let's face it, there's only one way round a roundabout,) then turn right at the first exit !
Just to finish my moan...after 30 years here I bought my first right hand drive car (off an ex pat) cos it was very cheap and I was 'a bit short'. It's got French plates etc...but if any vehicle behind me spots the driver on the wrong side...ie driving in the passenger seat)..he just HAS TO OVERTAKE !!! even if I'm doing 110 on a 90 kph stretch...the baby just has to overtake l'anglais.
It's a decent country all the same......c'est comme ca !!! au revoir or tara!!! in Mancunian.
