This ONLY applies to French registered vehicles, so we will have to get them, he suggests two magnetic (for driver and passenger doors) and a self-adhesive sticker for the rear surface.
Not wishing to p1ss on your chips Dave but I emailed the French Embassy to check out the info you were given and unfortunately it is wrong.

The French Police Dept at the French Embassy replied to my question...


"Thank you for your email. The road regulations in France also apply to non-French registered vehicles.

So regulations regarding visible signs will apply to your vehicle in France."



So if you are over 3500kg the signs are needed for foreign registered vehicles as well as French.

I'm happy to forward the email on that I received if anyone wants a copy. Just PM me your email address.

Oh great, so the answer I was given was WRONG.

That would also explain why this morning, on the M27 traffic jam heading (slowly) from Portsmouth where we landed at around 0930, we saw a coach, definitely U.K. registered avec “angle mort” stickers……

So the definitive answer we were given was definitely WRONG.

Apologies for raising the hopes of all those now compelled to attach these things….l

Sadly, I have also read that if you use the magnetic ones (as we had intended to do on the doors) they have to be taken off each evening to “prevent condensation behind the stickers causing the surface to become damaged”.

So, sticky ones look next to be chosen……. But, they will come off with a hairdryer once the French abandon this rule……

Yes it's a bugger.

I hadn't read that about the magnetic ones either (which I also have) so thanks for that info.

Let's hope it turns out to be another breathalyser-type flash in the pan!

We have has magnetic ones on our cars for 7 and 17 years and the only problem we have experienced is in the car wash finding them as the brushes flick them off.

I see loads of small business owners/taxis/owner couriers etc using them and I'm pretty sure that they don't take them off every night either.

Back in the dim and distant days……

When life was easy and travel FUN……

On the back of our cars we had magnetic GB stickers, they stayed there for years and never caused any problems, so whether that manufacturer has made something which encourages condensation, or whether they are simply covering their backsides “just in case” someone ever has a problem, I do not know.

But although I prefer using the magnetic ones “her inside” might be wary, so we will find a different supplier while we are in the U.K. The suggestion is to try truck servicing depot’s. Seems sensible.

I cannot see lorry drivers, coach drivers or bus drivers removing them (or, remembering to put them back on !).

It'd be easier to just run the buggers over surely, as Clarkson says, get a better job so you can afford a car.
