Bri­tish driv­ers speed­ing on France’s roads will no longer be able to avoid pay­ing fines un­der new EU rules due to come into force in 2017. Cur­rently French po­lice im­pose on-the-spot fines, though the lo­gis­tics of col­lect­ing fines from the half a mil­lion Bri­tish driv­ers caught on cam­era ev­ery year can prove chal­leng­ing. For the first time, po­lice in other EU coun­tries will be given the right to ac­cess Bri­tish mo­torists’ de­tails from the DVLA, mak­ing it eas­ier to track down of­fend­ers. How­ever, it re­mains un­clear how for­eign po­lice plan to pur­sue those who fail to pay the fines.
