This morning we drove back to the Aveyron after a few days in the mountains of the Cantal. On the Cantal’s routes nationales the speed limit remains 80kph (except for climbing lanes), but if one goes on to their routes départmentales, the limit goes up to 90kph. I also noticed that as we re-entered Occitanie (the Aveyron) there wasn’t an 80kph sign, which is now needed to warn motorists of the change.
I’m in favour of reverting to 90, but there needs to be more clarity and consistency. Both departments are heavily reliant on tourism and I think there’ll be a big rise in speeding fines for unsuspecting tourists from other parts of France
