France has a well-developed road system, about 420,000 miles of it, with superhighways, toll roads, between Paris-Lille; Paris-Lyons; Paris-Normandy; Lyons-Marseille; Esterel-Cote d’Azur; and Orange-Narbonne. Driving is on the right-hand side of the road. Yellow head lamps are compulsory on French cars. There is no overall speed limit in France, but on most roads the speed limit is 110 kilometers per hour (sixty-six miles per hour).
The TGV is in the same tradition for the French as the Concorde lots of speed. In fact, TGV trains are the fastest in the world. There are eighteen round-trips a day between the Gare de Lyon in Paris and Lyon, France’s second city in population. The trip takes two hours and ten minutes to cover the 266 miles. Geneva, Switzerland, takes three hours and a half; Paris to Lausanne, three hours and thirty-six minutes.
