"Driving Paris" Driving Tip by mrclay2000

Driving, Paris: 9 reviews and 11 photos

  traffic cop and the ubiquitous bicycle
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: Driving in Paris can be a daunting task. More use is made of the horn in Paris traffic than paint and brush on the city's thousand easels. Congestion at out-of-the-way intersections is usually cleared by vicious scowls and Italian gestures, while that at major crossroads is miraculously cleared by a blast from the gendarme's whistle. If you are forced to drive in Paris, use caution while merging but be bold . . .or lose more than your patience.
