By the book
In response to Peter Drummond’s letter ‘Faultless France’(cw October 12), the French Highway Code states that cars must leave a minimum of one metre in town and 1.5 metres outside towns when overtaking non-motorised road users (cyclists, pedestrians, horses etc). Failure to do so can result in three points on your licence. It does seem that this rule is quite well observed.
