General Advice and information about Speed limits for Motorhomes in Europe

Motorhome speed limits vary considerably across Europe

In most towns, villages, and built up areas there is a speed limit of 30mph/50km/h, however, in some areas, near schools for example, this limit can drop to 18mph/30km/h, and these lower limits will normally be signed posted.List of speed limits throughout Europe

In some European countries when you drive through a town or village the speed limit is not necessarily sign posted, instead the village name will be displayed on a rectangular sign with a red border as you enter the village, when you exit you will see a similar sign with black border and a red diagonal line through it, you are required to drive at 30mph in-between the two signs.

Speed cameras – In nearly all European countries it is illegal to use car navigation systems which actively search for mobile speed cameras or interfere with police equipment (laser or radar detection). Car navigation systems which give a warning of fixed speed camera locations are legal in most countries with the exception of France, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland where this function must be de-activated
