France to change speed limits

France will lower its speed limits on 1 July 2018 and ignorance of the law will be no excuse for breaking it.  In towns the limit will be 30kmph, on two lane roads 80kmph or 70kmph in rain.  Motorway limits - which 35 years ago were 150kmph, currently are 130kmph will stay the same except in wet weather when they will be reducted to 110kmph.  Dual Carriageways will be 110kmph, 100kmph in wet weather.
