Under enormous pressure by not only the general public, but also by many politicians from their own party, the ruling party of France (UMP) have decided to put a little water in the wine. They are still going to fine motorcycle riders (and cars) to death with the removal of radar warning signs and making it illegal to use radar warning software/hardware as can be found on most smartphone with navigation facilities.
But now the Minister of Interior has announced that they will place 1,000 pedagogic radars on the roads in France. These new radars, mostly installed in villages and low speed, single lane areas, will show you your speed, and if you were speeding, how much your fine would have been, and how many points you would have lost if this has been a real radar.
As measures go, it's a good and positive one. Most of us will occasionally pass the speed limit totally by accident, and this will "teach" you how quickly you can get caught (it's also a good thing to "calibrate" your speedometer).
But it still does remove the fact that the French government is going to milk us dry.
Update: The Minister of Interior has declared today that they will stop removing the radar warning signs (for now)
