I have been in contact with a friend and he has kindly given me a very useful site which will tell you what you need to drive in the mountains etc.

The main thing is that everyone is safe and within the law.

It's a good source but it doesn't mention the breath analyser kit.

Thursday PM I was going to have a meal with some friends. There were seven Gendarmes at a Round Point in Sorede. They didn't make me stop but I was driving very, very slow. Two of the Gendarmes looked into the Van ~ I think that the basic check is for the belts being attached. I wasn't asked to stop.

Considering the size of Sorede, this is good thought that you cannot drive through the smaller villages without being meeting the requirements. Keep yourself belted. It's cheaper!

Hey Black Duff, Trust you to notice the lack of the Breath Analyser.I'm sure the last time I looked Sorede wasn't quite under "mountain Status"[little joke] When it does snow there I will personally bring you my spare set of chains. Loved the little quote....why do I never have any of those.

I think that the law has already started but "they" have said they won't give fines until the first of March. I keep reading in Connexion about this being removed but I read the French newspapers too and I haven't seen anything along this way yet.
