Article below may be of interest to those that drive through France.

In the name of counter-terrorism and road safety, a draft decree provides that radar warning devices will no longer have the right to disseminate certain information to users. The Driver Defense League is launching a petition.

Coyote, Waze, and TomTom warning devices that tell drivers about speed controls, accidents, track objects, slowdowns or dangerous weather conditions may soon be overdue. The French Government forwarded to the European Commission on 24 April a draft decree "prohibiting the broadcasting, through the electronic assistance services for driving or navigation, of any message capable of signaling police operations In certain perimeters and likely to impair the effectiveness of the administrative police operations of road safety or of the judicial police operations carried out. "
In the absence of a reply from the Commission within three months, this decree would become applicable in France. Concretely, even if motorists report an incident, operators will be obliged to block alerts within a radius of 20 kilometers and for 24 hours. In other words, the interest of these warnings would become zero, except to signal permanent speed controls with fixed speed cameras or long-term jobs.

This wannabe facist move can only affect car sat navs and sign detection systems, imho.

Cant see how they will control what Waze etc apps does

Well they are just about to change presidents, so everything could still change, like it did with the breathalyser, new President (Hollande) decided they would not prosecute anyone for not carrying one.

Indeed, not a good sign of things to come.

"In the name of counter-terrorism and road safety, a draft decree provides that..." everyone must stay indoors unless express authorisation is given and accompanied by an agent of the state.
